The publishing industry hasn’t changed much in the last century and so nor have the themes explored within many of the titles on children’s bookshelves. All the while, though, the world has changed markedly. Societal awareness of the issues that impact the earth has grown immensely and our children are growing up to face challenges that we didn’t even know existed all those years ago. It is the exploration of these challenges that make our books unique; the way we have gently woven issues of such importance into stories that carry timeless appeal for children really is our secret sauce!
Ohhh, good question. That’s REALLY hard to answer… But, okay, we’ll try to explain: there is no recipe for crafting a bestselling children’s picture book, but there are definitely some must-have ingredients. You HAVE to have truly beautiful illustrations that really add all the wonderful details that ensure children are captivated by the scenes on every page. And, you really need to write with flow and finesse – it makes the whole experience especially enchanting. The books you find in this collection achieve all of the above and a whole lot more, so they really are not to be missed!
