A planet like ours


This is how a sustainable life works: Let's protect the earth and all its living beings!

Talking about the topics of environmental protection and sustainability with small children is not easy, but it is still very important.

Frank Murphy and Charnaie Gordon have written a picture book that makes these conversations possible: “A Planet Like Ours” shows children all the richness of our earth and inspires them to take responsibility for our environment.

Environmental protection and sustainability are the major challenges of our time. With 'A Planet Like Ours', even the youngest learn why it is worth protecting our Earth and what each of us can do to make a contribution.

About the publisher

A Berlin publisher

We met and fell in love in 2012 when Anna was on a language trip to Berlin. Initially, Anna lived in Warsaw, where she studied linguistics, and Lukas lived in Berlin, where he set up his first company. After a few years of long-distance relationship, connected by the Berlin-Warsaw express train, Anna moved to Berlin, and in 2016 we got married on a beach in the Seychelles. What connected us from the start: We love books and are proud of our large bookshelf.

In 2018, happiness became perfect: our twins Zoë and Vincent were born. Now we bought children's books in the three languages ​​our children are growing up with: German, English and Polish. We noticed that many wonderful children's books are available in one language but not in the other. That's why we, a translator and an entrepreneur, decided to publish these books ourselves!

And so we founded Zuckersüß Verlag. Since 2019 we have been searching, finding and translating the most beautiful children's books in the world and bringing them to Germany. For ourselves and our children and all young families who enjoy reading together.
