Welcome to Little Learners!
Sharing books with your little one is such an important and enjoyable experience for both children and parents. At Parragon, we wanted to support this bonding experience with a view to the child’s mind. How will a baby interact with each book in a series, and how do we make sure that parents understand a child’s learning process through a book? From this question, Little Learners (Little Me, in Australia) was born, bringing to life a series of colourful and contemporary characters for kids and parents to play along with.
Each book in the series focuses on a different level of child development during children’s most crucial learning stages, encouraging education and interactive play between parent and baby—anytime, anywhere. The books take on a variety of fun formats including snuggly cloth books, stroller books, “slide and see” play, bath books, and finger puppets; topics range from colors and numbers to animals, food, and sharing, taking every moment as an opportunity to learn along with beautifully illustrated characters.
Developed in conjunction with educational consultants, Little Learners / Little Me also aims to make key learning concepts easy for parents. With icons on each book indicating its learning functions – including interactive play, hand-eye coordination, language development, first words, knowledge about the world, listening skills, and sense of touch – parents can rest easy knowing that their babies are engaging with the world around them in a meaningful way.
The Little Learners range has been extensively tested by focus groups of real mothers, all of whom loved the unique, playful nature of the books. Said one mother: “Little Learners have depth to them, they are perfect for babies but have things for them to grow into as well, like concepts around texture and size.”
We're really excited to bring Little Learners / Little Me to families across the world and books into the lives of babies everywhere!
