Author – Raising Literacy Australia / Little Book Press
Since 2006, we have been designing and producing picture and board books, nursery rhyme cds and dvd and activity booklets for families to share with their children from birth. Research continues to tell us that a baby’s brains will grow and develop by an amazing 80% in the first 4 years. By having fun every day through sharing stories, playing games, singing songs and lots of talking, not only helps you to bond with your baby, but will also have significant impact on the growth and development of your baby’s brain.
Illustrator – Fiona Bowden
Fiona’s interest in paper began while studying a Bachelor of Arts at Uni SA 1989-1992. Majoring in textiles allowed her to explore the many ways in which paper can be made, used and manipulated. This fascination has continued and developed in to making picture books. Starting with black and white paper cutouts for My First Shapes has allowed her to open a new way of illustrating she has not explored before. By cutting layering and collaging and adding colour and pattern the possibilities are endless.
