Win three baby books from new independent Tunbridge Wells publisher, Mama Makes Books!
AD – This is a collaborative post with Mama Makes Books
One of the most positive things I have seen come out of this pandemic is the launch of some lovely local Tunbridge Wells brands as well as the support which so many of us have for buying local these days.
I’m very proud to be working with Mama Makes Books, a brand new children’s publisher launching its first baby books this month! My daughter adores these books which we were kindly given samples of. They are hugely interactive and make reading with her so much fun. Find out all about this brand new business and how to win a copy of the first three titles…
The brainchild of Penny Worms, a Tunbridge Wells based Mum, Grandma and passionate children’s books author, Mama Makes Books will be publishing board books, novelty books, early learning and non-fiction for children up to 8 years old.
We have three books to give away to one book-loving reader:
♥ Tummy Time! is a high-contrast concertina book for newborns
♥ Baby Look! is for little ones who love books that DO things. It has a wheel, sliders, holes, textures and a mirror to encourage babies’ developing motor skills and introduce vocabulary and concepts.
♥ Baby Love is a touch-and-feel flap book that follows the bedtime routine, designed to soothe tired toddlers before sleep.
It hasn’t been an easy 9 months for Mama Makes Books which was due to make its debut at Bologna Children’s Book Fair in March, but the world of commerce stopped dead and public gatherings were cancelled. Fast forward nine months and Penny is getting excited at last.
“It’s a common publishing analogy that launching a book is like giving birth, and if I run with that, I’m having triplets! Brexit and Covid-19 feel like evil fairies trying to prevent their birth, but happily some good fairies are on their side with more powerful magic.”
Penny tested her first prototypes on some Tunbridge Wells babies, after asking for help on Facebook and Nextdoor. “It was a joy to spend the day with gorgeous babies and their book-loving parents. I adapted the books based on their feedback, so it was valuable.”
The books are available to pre-order from local bookshops and online and can be purchased from 5th February.
