Editor's Picks for Kids MOVING + The Typefaces + Up & Down
Moving from one home to another is often stressful for adults and children alike – even more so if it involves a relocation to a different country. On top of the physically exhausting processes like house hunting and packing, the constant change in environment can also take a heavy toll on one’s emotions, particularly affecting the young. Eugenia Mello was inspired by her own nomadic childhood to tell the story of a lonely young girl who eventually finds a family within her new community and its culture through dance and music. Besides its simple yet compelling narrative, Moving also features stunning illustrations that reflect the subtle beauty in the author’s relatable experiences and perspectives.
ABOUT THE TYPEFACES
Inspired by letterpress printing and childlike observations, The Typefaces are simply faces in type. Initially self-published by illustrator and author Scott Lambert in 2015, the book has gone on to win several global design awards with its wit and charm since.
Besides offering young readers a unique and compelling means to learn the alphabet, the new edition also hopes to continue encouraging people to look at familiar things in different ways while eliciting delight in new discoveries. In Scott’s own words, The Typefaces is for the designer in every child, and the child in every designer.
ABOUT UP & DOWN
From the misty hilltops of distant lands to the freezing depths of the Arctic Ocean, Up & Down splits various settings into two fun perspectives that will intrigue little explorers. With over 500 contextual words labelled throughout 20 beautifully illustrated scenes, young readers will get to build their vocabulary while developing an eye for detail and a new sense of wonder about our world.
