Meet Lydia. 

Hi, I am super glad you stopped by.

Every business story is different, here is a bit about ours:

My kids are the wonderful inspiration for our quiet books.

I initially made the first book for my daughter Florence when she was just two.  

As a designer, mum of 2 and the daughter of 2 primary school teachers I wanted to make something that focused on old school learning. 

I wanted the books to be eye catching, modern, bright, engaging, challenging and full. So full that our little Einsteins stay engaged for longer!

We made a small number of books at first and it grew from there. We love serving such a beautiful community and feel proud to be part of something special. 

Providing tactile activities that require the use of hands, eye’s and minds is a remarkable way to stimulate kids senses, accelerate their learning and encourage the wonderful sentiments of engagement and practice.
