About me


I’m Elisavet Arkolaki (aka Liza), welcome to my blog 🙂

I’m a multilingual mom raising two beautiful multilingual and ethnically mixed children, and I’m a children’s book author, mainly writing and publishing bilingual books. I have lived in six countries and my home right now is in Norway.

Both my husband and I are passionate about travel; inspired by global learning, we’re raising our own children in between countries, cultures, and languages. I write to build cultural understanding and sensitivity in young children while they are still eager to learn, and also help them in their bilingual journey through stories that reflect their way of living.

I graduated from the University of Liverpool with a degree in Global Marketing (MSc), the University of Athens with a degree in French Philology/Language and Literature (BSc) and I was awarded a certificate of proficiency in English from the University of Cambridge. I speak four languages now at different fluency levels.

I’m proud to volunteer as a PEaCH Ambassador. PEaCH is an Erasmus+ funded project that supports European families raising bilingual and multilingual children. PEaCH does this in the form of a handbook for parents, a handbook for educators, informative videos and an online collection of ready-to-use materials in the 24 official EU languages. On their YouTube channel you will find read-aloud videos with narration of my books in many languages.

To find fun activities related to my books, subscribe to my newsletter or join my private FB group Elisavet Arkolaki’s Behind the Book Club.
