BAM! Ik lees

Published by Volt, 2023

Illustrations by Yoko Heiligers, Anna Sikkes and Dorien Bellaar

In 2023, Volt started publishing a non-fiction series for beginning readers, based on the idea that if you’re reading something that you find really interesting, you’ll be able to read before you know it. The books contain clear texts with short sentences and lots of pictures by various Dutch illustrators. Joukje Akveld has written three titles about animals for this series: about crocodiles, sharks and pandas.

Hey, Crocodile/Hee, krokodil
Argh, a Shark!/Ai, een haai!
A Book about Pandas (But Not Only)/Een boek over panda’s (maar niet alleen)

‘Volt has published six non-fiction books about animals for beginning readers, and the ones written by Joukje Akveld really stand out.’

Friesch Dagblad

‘Joukje Akveld begins her early-readers book about sharks with the word “ai” (argh!) and ends it with the word “aai” (pet). In between, in very, very simple sentences, she conjures up a love for sharks in every reader.’
