Quotes of the classics

  Drink me! Illustration by John Tenniel, 1865.

So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.

Lewis Carroll,

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland



 


Song "All of Europe Reads to Kids"

Lyrics: Jacek Cygan
Music: Romuald Lipko
Translated:Małgorzata Skaradzińska
Featuring: Anna Karwan, Katarzyna Moś, Mateusz Krautwurst, Nick Sinckler
                                          








Untouched hearts on untouched pages,
Stories locked till further notice.
Lonely emperor, sad Thumbelina,
Old wizard and his apprentice.
Abandoned hobbits – Horton is snoring
Will Sleeping Beauty ever wake up?
Thomas the train is getting rusty
Arthur’s knights are in a lockup.

Who’s gonna wake them, who’s gonna rescue?
- You wanna help, start reading fast.
They are waiting and missing your touch,
Don’t want to breathe in any more dust.

Chorus:
All of Europe reads to kids
When it’s rainy or sunny,
All of Europe reads to kids,
Cause Europe is Mummy.
Blend emotions with the letters 
Imagination suddenly flares.                                                                            
All of Europe reads to kids
Cause Europe truly cares.

Wide open hearts in opened books
Elated pages are glowing with bliss
When bedtime stories are read by daddy
It’s something children don’t wanna miss

Who’s gonna wake them, who’s gonna rescue?
- You wanna help, start reading fast.
They are waiting and missing your touch,
Don’t want to breathe in any more dust.
