Courage for Blood


“Courage for Blood” is the inclusive manual on the topic of menstruation! Expert Chella Quint answers all questions about periods: she introduces menstrual products, explains what happens in the body and shows us how we can deal with periods positively and without shame.

We have been looking for a long time for a book that presents the supposedly taboo topic of menstruation in a positive, inclusive and entertaining way. The "Period Positive" founder Chella Quint has succeeded in doing exactly that: "Courage for Blood" removes taboos about periods and encourages children and young people to deal openly with their thoughts and feelings about menstruation and without false shame.


We recommend this book as a read aloud for ages 8 and up.

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.
