How the idea of the book 'Martian Alphabet' was born
The birth of the book 'Martian ALPHABET' was stimulated by the non-formal education project 'Healthy Lifestyle Alphabet' for primary school students, which was initiated and implemented nationally by Egle Jokuzyte, the head of the publishing house 'Business or Art'.
The project aimed to promote children's creativity and develop healthy lifestyle habits of the growing generation.
85 Lithuanian schools joined the project. From them, 14 classes were selected according to the criteria chosen by the authors of the idea and the teachers' motivation letters. As many as 275 third-grade students from various Lithuanian cities and towns participated in the educational program and, performing interactive tasks, discussed healthy eating, active and meaningful leisure, and environmental protection.
During these sessions, 13 stories that did not lack childish humor were born, which illustrated with ingenious drawings by Vilmas Narecionis and were included in the book 'Martian Alphabet'.
