Depending on the parent’s home-country

Important things to consider when it comes to raising Polish children abroad

Polish children who are living abroad can fall into one of the multiple names usually used for children of parents born outside of their residence country: expat Polish, third culture kids are the most common. 

What that means in real life is that Polish children are growing up in between two or more worlds. There is their current residence country, which in many cases is their home, there is Poland and the Polish roots from at least one of the parents and there is in many instances the world of the second parent, coming from different roots. This can leave your children in a head-scratching mindset, with much deeper implications in the long-run. You, as a parent, want the best of all these worlds for your children: to respect and be in touch with their Polish culture, be it in the form of Polish customs and traditions or be it in taking part in the local Polish community. On the other side, you want them to be integrated into the culture of the host country, so they do not feel like complete outsiders. In the end, most of the time, they end up somewhere in the middle, where they do not feel as fully owning the Polish roots as Polish children born and raised their whole life inside Poland, but neither as fully locals, as many times they are not fully accepted or integrated.

Create a wonderful adventure for your Polish child living abroad

Journey to Another Homeland: Poland comes as a support for a fun and exciting starting point in the ongoing discussion about your child’s Polish heritage and links. It is meant for babies, toddlers, and pre-schooler, but many parents, grandparents and Polish friends see it as unique modern Polish kids book bringing their own story to life and making it easier to engage with their little ones on a topic the parents care so much about.

Respect for your Polish heritage: our storybook comes with a Polish language version, and the personalised character names can include all Polish names

While not being a truly bilingual polish book, you can nonetheless get it in either English or Polish language, depending on your preference. The storybook for your child touches upon Polish folk culture, traditional dances children can learn and practice with their parents, Polish typical cuisine and what did you like as a child to eat and brushes on other Polish customs and traditions. Your child will be exhilarated by the engaging and appealing illustrations about Poland and curious to keep hearing the personal stories of your time spent there or other family members who still live there.

This personalised children book is really for your child to discover and connect with Poland and what you hold dear about your homeland. Except for the Polish language option, you can put in the story the actual name of your child, as it is written, without having to adapt it or skip diacritics.

While the illustrated children's book enhances the feeling of proudness to be Polish, it presents differences or makes the link between the current home country of your child and the journey’s destination country, Poland. The kid would feel the need to ask more and explore more as he grows up and it can be a good medium to share the storybook with the non-Polish parent, if that is your case, as then the whole family gets on board this fascinating and fun adventure to your Polish roots and personal stories.
