The shortlist for the 2021 Junior Design Awards has been announced – and we are thrilled to see Make Tracks: Farm and Peekaboo Sun have been shortlisted in the Best Baby Book 0-2 years category, and What Are Little Girls Made of? has been shortlisted in the Best Designed/Illustrated Book for Children category!
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 honoured to have been shortlisted again this year.
Make Tracks: Farm, illustrated by Johnny Dyrannder, is a brilliant chunky board book for toddlers who love things that go. Learn about five different farm vehicles, with simple first words, clear diagrams and fun, easy-to-use counters that little ones with love moving around the page.
From the creators of the bestselling Felt Flaps series, Ingela P Arrhenius and Camilla Reid, Peekaboo Sun is a wonderful summery addition to this stylish, interactive book series. With ten peekaboo sliders, fun rhyming text and a surprise mirror at the end, this beautiful book is perfect for babies and toddlers this summer.
Rediscover your favourite nursery rhymes in What Are Little Girls Made of? – a beautifully illustrated collection of reworked rhymes with a feminist twist, proving that girls can be heroes of any story too. With brilliantly funny rhymes by award-winning Jeanne Willis and charming artwork by Isabelle Follath, this is the perfect gift – and a wonderful book for children and adults alike to read aloud, or enjoy alone.
Judging for the Junior Design Awards will begin in late June. You can read more about the awards and see the full shortlist, here.
