In a Minute and A Bare Bear are the first releases in a series of children’s books from Penguin as part of the ‘Ladybird by Design’ series.
This was an opportunity to create books for children that offer a way of making sense of the idiosyncrasies of language and make learning words and numbers more fun.
A Bare Bear
A book of words that sound the same takes the reader on a whimsical journey through examples of homonyms and homophones with exuberant illustrations that make it easy to understand the difference between the two, while expanding and developing vocabulary. With short sentences and key words in bold, the reader is invited to say the words aloud to hear their similarity.
In a Minute
Take the 60-second challenge! gives the reader an interesting time-related factoid and then challenges them to perform an activity in one minute. For example, A winning star-jumper can jump 77 times in a minute. How many star-jumps can you do in a minute? The book combines playful information with exciting and fun physical and mental exercises illustrated with a collection of playful images.
