Contrary to popular belief, creating children’s books is not child’s play – pun intended – but rather a meticulous mixture of magical characters, engaging storytelling, life-affirming messages, and imagination. A great one will bind you in their spell and create worlds beyond ours. An amazing way for children to learn about the world we live in, the wonders it entails and places it hides, is through the whimsical world of books. I remember reading through my favorite books over and over again as a child, and I still remember the stories in them, as well as the adventures I developed beyond the pages.

Maps, a children’s atlas is a celebration of the world, from its immense mountains to its tiny insects, and everything in between. It features 51 highly illustrated maps by Polish illustrators Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski showcasing borders, cities, rivers, and peaks, but also places of historical and cultural interest, eminent personalities, iconic animals and plants, cultural events, and many more fascinating facts associated with every region of our planet. Best described as fascinating, appealing, interesting and informative, Maps is full of detail and curiosities and is loved by all ages. First time published in 2012 and now translated into several languages, Maps is printed on beautiful Munken Polar paper.
Little Snowman Stan is a wintertime story written by Guido Van Genechtenfor for little snowmen everywhere, teaching about freedom and independence. The book tells a tale of a snowman named Stan who is told by other showmen to stay still, as no snowmen are meant to move or they’ll melt, but as every snowflake in his little body feels the urge and thirst of adventure, he sparks upon a journey of his own. Published in 2011 by Clavis Publishing House and printed by Polygraf Print in Belgium on Condat Matt Perigord paper.
