This June we were very proud to publish Welcome to Our World, written by Moira Butterfield and illustrated by Harriet Lynas – a beautifully illustrated book packed full of fun facts, and a celebration of children everywhere.
And very fittingly for its subject, we’re delighted to see how well the book has been received around the world!
Welcome to our World has already been sold into eight languages (with more on the way!) – and at the top of this post you can see, clockwise from top-left, editions of the book in Estonian (published by Koolibri), Italian (published by Lapis Edizioni), Portuguese (published by Edicare), French (published by Gallimard Jeunesse), English (published by us), and Finnish (published by Otava). Seeing our books shared around the world in this way – particularly when they have such an important and timely message – is such a hugely satisfying and rewarding experience (as well as a testament to the excellent work of our rights department!).
In this wonderful book, young children can learn all about what people in other countries eat, wear and play, and how they speak and celebrate. From breakfasts to birthdays, cakes to clothes, and hiccups to hellos, there are so many ways to say and do things – but everyone shares a love of family, friends, food and fun. This delightful book teaches us that despite different languages, customs and traditions, it really is a small world, after all.
