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.
“Our daughter loves your books – they always catch her attention, and she stares at each page intently. We use them in the car and during tummy time, and can’t wait to continue reading them with her as she grows – counting, telling stories, and talking about the everyday shapes in her world. They are simple and sturdy and I’m so delighted we found them!” Diana mother of baby girl, QLD.
“James loves them, he gets so entranced in the shapes. He received them at the WCH as a premature baby. Thank you for giving us such a gorgeous gift, I used to read your books to him by his cot side and it helped get me through.” Amy mother of James, SA.
