Björn Kuipers on respect

The booklet consists of a collection of illustrations, comics and stories that all have to do with values ​​and norms. They were created by listening carefully to students in group eight of primary school. They presented us with the topics.

The design, illustrations and typography are by me, supplemented with nice comics by Charles van den Broek and a painting by Henk van Heerebeek.
The booklet about respect can be ordered free of charge by primary schools for students of group 8. More information can be found on the website:
