About Herke

Herke Sanders_de



I am Herke and together with my Squirrel Emma I invented De Boekenhoek. That actually went more or less automatically. My neighbor asked if I had heard of the bear hunt phenomenon. Children search for teddy bears in their neighborhood, which have been put behind the windows by people. Of course I participated. Super nice idea. Especially in this time of Corona. Immediately the picture book 'We go on a bear hunt' popped up in my head. How nice would it be to first read this book with your children on the couch and then on a bear hunt together.


"De Boekenhoek is a wonderful idea - also for bilingual children."
