Children’s thirst for knowledge has been at the heart of TESSLOFF’s activities for more than 60 years. Founded in Hamburg in 1956 by Ragnar Tessloff, the company published the first-ever children’s and youth books in Germany.
TESSLOFF has been a leading children’s non-fiction publisher since then. The programme ranges from books for babies, educational kindergarten, pre- and primary school books for children, to answer books and knowledge-based book series. The successful brand WAS IST WAS includes book series for three different age ranges as well as puzzle books and interactive books.
›WAS IST WAS‹, the famous knowledge brand, offers knowledge transfer in various forms of media – wasistwas.de, books, DVDs, radio plays, quizzes, puzzle books, apps and e-books. With large-format photographs, witty extras to marvel at, catchy texts, and colourful layouts, the book series presents expert knowledge in a fascinating and entertaining way.
With ›WAS IST WAS Kindergarten‹ little world explorers aged 3 and older can become absorbed by their favourite factual topics. »At the flaps, get set, go« is the motto of the ›WAS IST WAS Junior‹ series. Numerous activity elements, fascinating explorer flaps and colourful illustrations let children aged 4 and older dive into the rich world of knowledge.
High-quality picture books and board books support the little ones every step of the way as they develop – and they round off the publishing house’s range of products.
