Kobold Celebrates Author Clare Beaton

On one of his many adventures around the world, our little Kobold discovered the talents of Clare Beaton. Ms. Beaton is an award-winning artist and author who creates children's books using a colourful range of mostly vintage materials. She is a highly sought-after creator of handcrafted children's picture books. She has had nearly fifty books published, many of which Kobold is happy to offer through Kobold Toys. The illustrations in her books are filled with color and texture, sure to captivate the eyes and mind of any child.

Here are some of Kobold's favorites- sure to be wonderful additions to your child's libary:

There's a cow in the cabbage patch, moo, moo, moo! She should be in the dairy, what shall we do? Tour the farmyard and help all of the animals find their way to their rightful spots in this topsy turvy jaunt. Rhyme and repetition complement the story of a farm full of animals that are each exploring another's home.

Elusive Moose. Search for the elusive moose in the snowy north, and meet lots of other northland animals on the journey. The hardcover edition includes endnotes about all the creatures, a guessing game of animal footprints, and a page of informative facts about the moose.

I Dreamt I Was a Dinosaur. Join a young boy on a dreamland adventure to prehistoric times, where he meets dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes. The rhyme filled text is followed by fascinating notes about the age of dinosaurs.

Playtime Rhymes for Little People. Act out each of the imaginative selections in this hand-sewn anthology. The forty rhymes and games encourage active play and participation with step-by-step instructions to follow. Book with CD edition includes songs and rhymes performed by Susan Reed.

Welcome a new baby into the world with Baby’s First Book, featuring Clare Beaton’s exquisite hand-sewn collages. Paired with a cuddly White Bunny Rabbit puppet, this gift set makes the perfect present and is presented in an eco-friendly, reusable green shopper tote with a gift tag to personalize it.
