This isn't just the motto of the famous author of children's books and philanthropist. It's also the motto of the Astrid Lindgren stage at the FEZ Berlin. Astrid Lindgren talked and wrote stories about things that children need, and are missing.

The Astrid Lindgren stage aims to open up a new world to children. It's a world of adventure, fantasy, music and poetry - the world of theatre.
