Be a real man


You can be anything. You can be anyone.
Have you ever felt like you should behave a certain way or do certain things just because you're a boy?

This book encourages boys to expand their ideas about what it means to be a boy.

This unique book can be life-saving for the many children who do not fit into the old-fashioned, narrow concepts of masculinity. Jessica Sanders encourages boys to be completely themselves, to embrace their vulnerable sides, and shows us that attributes such as creativity, sensitivity, and caring are absolutely masculine qualities.

We recommend this book as a read aloud for ages 4 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.
