Positivity-Packed Picture Books for Little People

We could all do with a little more positivity in our lives, and at FunFair Books we’re here to help. Our children’s interactive and colourful picture story books are designed for sharing, to support parents in helping children develop a lifelong love of books, while learning life skills and having fun reading. 

Fun for Children and Great for Grown Ups

We use rhyme, puzzles, humour and open questions to make it EASY for parents, teachers and carers to help children:

* Have fun reading * Explore positive themes – like wellbeing, growth mindset, kindness, compassion and empathy * Talk about their thoughts, ideas and feelings * Enjoy the shared and connective experience of reading together * Establish a love of reading to create learning habits for life*

We LOVE Reading, Literacy and Community

Approximately 1 in 8 disadvantaged children in the UK don’t own a book [1]. We aim to support fairer access to picture books to support children with education and literacy through projects and donations. We’re proud of our donations record – find out more here
