Melvin the fish is the hero of a book!

About a year ago, DK publishing contacted me because they intended to feature my Melvin the fish in their new book, "Peekaboo under the sea". For this, they asked me to make two different expressions to Melvin: his little playful eye, but also a wide open eye, because it is really more convenient to play hide and seek ... A year after sending Melvin I had the treat to receive a small package from DK. The book was ready to be distributed!

Story Time: Touch Think Learn ABC by Xavier Deneux

Touch Think Learn: ABC by Xavier Deneux is a beautiful and unique tactile book to introduce your little one to the alphabet. I was immediately drawn to it when I caught sight of this beautiful, quite imposing book, on the library shelves. Its vivid and colourful illustrations will delight everyone in the family.  Each page has raised die cut letters or shapes  so your little one can enjoy running their little fingers over them.

This book is very engaging...

Why is Reading so Important for Kids?

Take a trip down memory lane for a moment. Do you remember when you were little, and you heard a story that wrapped you up in a whole other dimension... An imaginary world constructed from words, but that might as well have been real — that you could almost touch, smell and that you could most definitely feel? Do you remember all your favourite stories? Did the twists and turns of fate that transported the characters in those stories ever teach you something about your own life? Reading, yesterday as today, is a powerful thing. It’s important, especially for young...
