" A niechaj narodowie wżdy postronni znają, iż Polacy nie gęsi, iż swój język mają! " - Mikołaj Rej.

Polish Literature for Kids

Hello and welcome to my English page!

My name is Janina Czarnecki and I am a Polish author living in the United States for over twenty years. As a mother of two boys, they were always my inspiration to keep Polish culture and language alive in our family. My mission is to do the same for other children by giving them an opportunity to learn the Polish language through my stories. Fun and easy to read, my stories are carefully crafted to provide life lessons and engage the child to think about the message at hand. My books also capture the imagination of the little ones with colorful characters, modern story lines and easy to read paragraphs.

In addition, I provide free poems and activities for printing and sharing directly from my website. My books, poems and creations are available for parents, schools and other organizations around the world interested in providing Polish literature. My hope is that my love for storytelling and pride in keeping the Polish tradition alive will bring you and your children great joy!

My website is available in Polish but I welcome anyone to contact me in English with any questions or comments at janina@liljanka.com or follow me on Facebook.

Thank You,
Janina Czarnecki
