We 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:

Vocabulary
Reading Comprehension
Visual Literacy

We donate 20p from every book we sell to Booktrust’s newchildren's reading fund booktrust Children’s Reading Fund to support their work with children with additional needs.
