Child's Play is more than just a publishing programme, it is a philosophy. We understand that a child's early years are more important than any other and this is when they learn the most about the world around them. Books play a vital role in building the foundations for learning, and exposure to quality books from an early age helps to develop an enquiring mind and a lifelong love of reading.
Child's Play has a history of creating innovative, award-winning books for children from 0-8 years that promote learning through play – books that fully reflect our diverse society in terms of heritage, disability, gender and family.
Child's Play books are loved by parents, teachers and, most importantly, children all over the world.

She has decided to now go by her real name and lives in an even smaller itty bitty town (population 32) in beautiful Colorado. In the summer time (Summer enjoys the summer and not the winter) you can find her rock climbing, mountain biking or doodling on her contracts.
