Adit and His Lego

OK... I will share a bit about Adit and his creativity.

His name is Raditya Ardi Widigda. We really hope that he will be grown up as a man full of knowlegde and wisdom. Adit is Keni's twin brother. They love and supportive each other.

Adit has a great sense of humor, and Keni always love to laugh.

Adit never really keen on any toys. He don't like drawing, paly dough, soccer, football or any other activities. We keep looking what his real hobby is. He is tottally different from his twin's sister and we always support them individually. 

Then we discovered that Adit loves to read especially books about science and any kind of encyclopedia. 

alhamdulillah... when we try to give him Legos, and he love it.


He able to modify simple legos, into many new design. He wants to join a robotic club soon. 









Wish you all the best, Adit!

KISAH KOTA KITA by DK Wardhani & Watiek Ideo

Alhamdulillah... benar-benar sebuah mimpi jadi nyata...

** Rabu Seru **
Alhamdulillah, bahagia saya rasakan saat buku ini akhirnya terbit. Berangkat dari keprihatinan terhadap kondisi kota dan ingin memperkenalkan arsitektur dan tata kota pada anak-anak Indonesia, saya mengajak mb Watiek Ideo berkolaborasi menyusun beberapa cerita yang tertuang dalam buku Kisah Kota Kita.

Buku ini menceritakan pentingnya taman kota, daur ulang sampah, mengenal tata kota dan cagar budaya, menjaga kebersihan pasar tradisional, dan lain sebagainya. Kepedulian anak-anak sangatlah dibutuhkan demi terciptanya kota bersih, ramah lingkungan, dan nyaman.


Ilustrasi di dalam buku Kisah Kota Kita ini cukup unik karena keseluruhannya memakai cat air dan dilukis manual oleh tangan-tangan berbakat para ilustrator, beberapa diantaranya adalah arsitek-arsitek ahli tata kota. Selain itu, di setiap judul terdapat mini ensiklopedi dan fakta unik tentang kota sehingga dapat menjadi buku pengetahuan yang menyenangkan.

Kisah Kota Kita memiliki harapan yang amat besar, yakni menggugah awareness anak-anak terhadap segala hal yang terjadi di kota, menumbuhkan empati, serta perasaan memiliki, sehingga mereka ikut menjaga dan merawat kota. Jika kita menyentuh hati seseorang saat ia masih kanak-kanak, kepedulian itu akan melekat hingga ia dewasa.

Penulis   : 'Dini' Dian Kusuma Wardhani & Watiek Ideo

Tebal     : 180 halaman (10 cerita asyik + ensiklopedi + fakta unik)

Keni and Her Self-publish Books

Let me introduce you my little daughter called Keni. 
Her full name is Kenia Dyanti Sukmarini, was born in July 2008. She really is a special little girl with a beautiful smile and amazing talent. 




These are her selfpublish Picbooks. She, with a little help from me as her co-author plus editor has been writting more than 5 picture books, since July. As I said before, She started to use pencil when she was just a toodler. She doodles all the time, here and there. She tried everything from watercolor, crayons, colored pencils and playdoh for drawing.

I really hope she will be able to publish her book in a real publisher, someday.
Wish you all the best dear.






Keni and her twin brother, Adit

Next time I will share my stories about adit and his creativity.

Free Picbook #2 KELAS SERANGGA (by Keni)

Keni has finised her second picbook. It is all about bugs :D 
Well done Keni :)
She loves bugs so much. All of them, ants, grashopers, ladybugs, dragonflies, butterflies etc. Bugs became her drawing objects mostly, beside herself and cats.

She always puts attention on the details, draws expressions and gives embelishment here and there. She always amaze me with her imagination, she had just turn 6 years last July.
Keni never worried about mistakes she made, she draws everything with one line drawing without erase it.
