The 2019 Junior Design Awards shortlist has been released, and we are thrilled to see that it includes both I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree: A Nature Poem for Every Day of the Year and Where’s Mr Duck!
The Junior Design Awards are run by parenting magazine Junior and celebrate “the very best and most beautiful products on the planet”– so we are thrilled to have made the shortlist!
I Am The Seed That Grew The Tree, has been shortlisted for Best Designed/Illustrated Book for Children. I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree, illustrated by Frann Preston-Gannon and collected by Fiona Waters, is a lavishly illustrated collection of 366 nature poems – one for every day of the year, including leap years. Filled with familiar favourites and new discoveries, written by a wide variety of poets, this is the perfect book for children (and grown-ups!) to share at the beginning or the end of the day, or just to dip into.
Here’s a look inside the book:
Where’s Mr Duck? has been shortlisted for Best Baby/Pre-Schooler Book 0-4 Years. Where’s Mr Duck? is part of our hugely popular Felt Flaps board book series for pre-schoolers. With easy-to-grasp, shaped felt flaps, a repetitive refrain and beautiful artwork from Swedish homewares designer, Ingela Arrhenius.
The Junior Design Awards winners will be announced in August, and you can see the past winner here.
Best of luck to Fiona, Frann, and Ingela!
