Literary editions of the author Elmira Helać-Mekić

The story "The Stone" by the author Elmira Helać-Mekić describes the events and experiences of the boys Damir and Nedim that take place from the spring of 1992 in a small village in eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina to their arrival and short stay in wartime Sarajevo.

The story "Kaldrma" is a continuation of the story of two brave and fearless boys, Damir and Nedim, who left their home due to the events of the war and went in search of their missing parents. Arriving in Sarajevo, the eleven-year-old boys face the cruelty of war. The book tells the true reality of war, which, fortunately, was overshadowed by brighter moments: love, friendship, resourcefulness, endurance and skill.

The book entitled "Horozgrad" consists of three stories: Horozgrad, Okana and Black Sheep. These are skilfully told fables because the main characters are animals with human features. Actions take place in houses, schools, dreams and problems. The author arranges her words into a marvelous mosaic of the palpably known, yet strange, unusual and magical. It's hard not to recognize the friend from the third pew next to the door in a small, insecure cock. The one who is the smallest of all in the class. Which he is happy to share snacks with, even to saons who aren't always friendly towards him.

The novel entitled "Dogs at the Crossroads" fully tries to determine the long-standing problem and fate of abandoned dogs and their indelible connection with the people with whom they have shared common fates over the centuries. A special quality of this novel is that it depicts our two autochthonous breeds of dogs: Tornjak in the character of Dona and Barak in the character of Astor, which in a specific way fosters patriotism and the obligation to preserve and nurture everything that our ancestors bequeathed to us. ancestors. The novel portrays the greatness of the common man and teaches us how much we can all be humane and noble with a little effort and provide help to endangered and neglected animals.

The books by the author Elmira Helać-Mekić are extremely suitable reading material for school reading, and I recommend them with pleasure for this purpose.

It emphasizes the importance of the individual characteristics of students in the context of acquisition, analysis and understanding, and the solving of assigned tasks. She emphasizes that in addition to abilities, the previous experience of the child should also be taken into account, which will affect the understanding and current sensibility for the type of tasks, more modern techniques and the role of the teacher, who should adequately prepare content that will contribute to the development of student potential.

The instructions for teachers and parents are of inestimable importance in practical work with students, because the author describes in detail the procedures as well as the work material, which is organized expertly and in continuity.
