Dr. Anna Kindler publishes a series of books for young children

As part of her work as an educator engaged with early childhood development and learning Dr. Anna Kindler recently published a series of 10 books for young children with Early Childhood Learning (ECL) Publishing.

The collection of 10 books, each featuring a unique animal character, was written to stimulate imagination, creative play and encourage self-directed as well as interactive activities for young children. The stories are lighthearted, as the animals explore the world, occasionally getting into mischief. Each story ends with a playful invitation for the child to help the animal understand their predicament, encouraging problem solving.

The style of illustrations is deliberately adjusted to capture the child’s imagination while creating the capacity to focus and explore nuance that is frequently drown in the “visual noise” of many children’s books on the market. The boldness of shapes and lines is balanced with the disciplined use of colour and detail, supporting the child’s aesthetic development and artistic learning.
