Curved House Kids make fun, inclusive books and visual literacy learning materials that empower children of all ages, all abilities and all learning styles. Our tactile, dynamic method allows kids to use their own ingenuity to develop three crucial elements of literacy:

Reading Comprehension
Visual Literacy
Visit our shop to get hold of our books that allow kids to either write or illustrate their own book; find everything you need to decorate your books (include washi tape!) on our shop too; visit the workshops page to learn about our events in schools, galleries and festivals, or get in touch just to say hello.

“My boys aged 6 and 8 had great fun with these books and loved creating their own illustrations – so much so that they are making their own little books on a regular basis! Time-out for a tired mum.” Yvonne McGuinness, UK

How do you help your children form a good relationship with books and reading? How do you prepare them for the modern world? The answer is to engage kids the way kids are engaging with the world: interactively, visually and in a way that empowers them to be part of the creative process. Our mission is to make reading, writing and visual literacy accessible by being:
 Fun and Interactive
