Opinions of children and adults at a meeting with my books and our projects 

  • Jadranka (teacher and head of hospital classes in Ljubljana):

"I have read the book. I think it's wonderful. Both, the content and rich, colourful language. I like the intertwining of life and fairy tale.
Every day I meet a lot of special children and their parents in hospitals.  When reading the story, I remembered a girl called Anja and her mother …
In Slovenia, title Woman of the Year is awarded every year (to women who are something special and have achieved something extraordinary) and I always comment that we do not need Woman of the Year title because ALL MOTHERS WHO HAVE AN ILL OR INJURED CHILD OR A CHILD WHO IS SPECIAL IN ANOTHER WAY deserve this title.«

  •  Nadja, mother of the main heroine in the book:

"A wonderful story, telling us stories of real heroes in a fairy tale way. Heroes who live near us but we often do not even notice them. Or we notice them, but not in the right way. We may notice their limp, thick glasses, prosthesis or wheelchair but we do not notice a wonderful character hiding behind that obstacle. We often pity them but often do not dare to approach them or look into their eyes. That is a shame because this is really not necessary and this book might be an eye-opener and help us accept differentness. To accept differentness without fear.

  • Vera, superhero Jaka's mother:

"Book Differentness opens a different perspective of people who have accepted their differentness, teaches us how to live with them and accept them as our equals. The book does teach us a lot. I would recommend the book to everybody and, above all, to all primary schools as primary-school children do not understand differentness and therefore it is difficult for them to accept it. 

  • Ana Karneža – singer (Slovenia's Got Talent):

"The book is wonderful and if you read it carefully, you can really learn a lot and transfer it to your life as there are a lot of things we often forget and we are often too superficial.  The book is about different children but a lot of people who seem to have everything lack those values (forgiveness, happiness, love, compassion, etc.). The book is inspirational and I agree with everything said.

  • ONE OF THE SUPERHEROES, PARALYMPIC SWIMMER DARKO ĐURIĆ, who broke the world record in 50-metre butterfly twice at the Paralympic Games in 2012, and several other great achievements, said the following for the book:

"Differentness is not an obstacle, it's a challenge. It makes us stronger, it teaches us how to fight for life in a different way. Differentness is a gift, given to those who are meant to change something in the world. And everybody, gifted in this way, has to accept it as such and not as an obstacle in life.

  • The preface of the book SUPERHEROES THAT MAKE DIFFERENCES was written by a retired teacher, Irma Lipovec, the receipient of an award for exceptional achievements in the field of elementary education in 2011. She was also my first teacher:

“This is the book that’s dedicated to all of us, children and adults alike. In this book you will find a lot of valuable messages and wisdoms. We just need to accept them and reflect them into our lives. That’s how our life will be full, compassionate, joyful, and happy. I’m honored that I can invite you to embrace this book into your life. You – and the book – would deserve this.”

  • 10-year-old girl:

“This was really the hour where I could look into my heart and the hearts of the super heroes that I met and realize that no one built a better world by itself but only all of us together. To Alenka Kos I am expressing the value of gratitude. Beautiful hour! And that’s why let’s think of a rainbow of values and make a better world. With values in my heart I will cherish and I will sympathize with the super heroes. Let’s create HARMONY!”

  • Thoughts of two 13-year-olds, who of the schools I’ve visited have the reputation of being problematic kids:

“I’m convinced that every person has good or bad compassion. I will try to eliminate all my sins and start living my life.”

“The presentation seemed good to me. I came to know many values that beforehand I hadn’t even thought about in life. When the author read about Jaku, I couldn’t think about anything else but the story. All the values really connected into harmony.”

  • 7-year-old MONIKA wrote:

“When we had a fairy key in our class, I opened my heart.”

  • 8-year-old VITA:

“To me the fairy tale seemed to be so beautiful that I was really able to put myself in it. I will never forget this day. The love in this fairy tale was beautiful. This is one of the best fairy tales I’ve ever heard.”
