ABOUT THE BOOK
Whether in a big backyard or on a small city balcony, children will have a blast with this do-it-yourself book full of great gardening ideas.
No need for sophisticated equipment or a large yard: Let’s Garden is a true DIY book that children can easily follow to take their first steps in gardening. Inspired by their own children’s fascination with everything that sprouts, Clara Lidström and Annakarin Nyberg teamed up to create a book that would encourage others to interact with their surroundings, whether in the countryside or the city.
From planting a sunflower in a pot and feeding the birds with leftover seeds to growing your own garlic and using it to flavor homemade cream cheese, Let’s Garden is full of inventive ideas. Step-by-step instructions are presented alongside whimsical illustrations and photographs, inspiring children to get their hands dirty!

ABOUT THE BOOK
The human body is astounding. This book explains how our body works in illustrations and texts that are created for children but are also fascinating for adults.
Children are curious about their bodies. They not only want to know how they breathe and where their food goes after they swallow it, but are also generally interested in how their bodies look on the inside and everything that happens there.
The book My Body takes its readers on a fun and compelling journey through the human body. Exploring how we breathe, where our blood flows, how we digest, our senses, skeleton, muscles, nerves, and brain, it imparts fundamental knowledge in a way that is understandable for children. It also provides fascinating information such as the fact that adults can be taller in the morning than they are at night or that giraffes have the same number of neck bones (seven) as humans do.
My Body’s vivid illustrations and engaging texts make the book wonderfully suitable for children. It takes them on an entertaining anatomical adventure that further stimulates their own natural curiosity.

I Love You Always
ABOUT THE BOOK
I Love You Always is an ode to motherly love that approaches a timeless topic with elegant simplicity and refreshing honesty.
With the simple question “Mom, will you love me my whole life?”, Max sparks the most honest and relatable of answers from his mother, who goes on to tell her son about all the moments in life through which she loves him. “I love you when you behave and when your good behavior doesn’t last” and “I love you when you look your best and when you’re feeling your worst” are some of the scenes author Astrid Desbordes and illustrator Pauline Martin succeed in depicting with heartwarming candidness. A refreshing take on a timeless subject, I Love You Always beautifully recounts a mother’s unconditional love for her child.
Astrid Desbordes studied philosophy before she began writing children’s books such as I Love You Always. After its release in 2014, this title quickly became a bestseller in her native France.
A native Parisian, Pauline Martin has already worked with Astrid Desbordes on numerous children’s books. She also illustrates graphic novels for adults.
