CREATING INDEPENDENT THINKERS & GLOBAL CITIZENS!


EDUCATIONAL • CREATIVE • CHILD-CENTRED

CREATING INDEPENDENT THINKERS When people find out that we’re a tiny team of two working from our respective homes, they often ask us what it’s like not having endless meetings all day or being able to choose our own hours. Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s great! But in the last couple of years, we’ve noticed that the questions have been changing. People are asking us how we choose what we publish, whether we have a message and what causes we support. And it’s not just a question of our being independent meaning that we’re ‘allowed’ (by ourselves!) to promote one of these causes. These days, it’s almost expected by consumers that we have a cause. They want to know that the company they are buying from cares about something more than just making money. So! What’s our cause? Why should a discerning consumer pay attention to our books? Looking at our list, we realised that the books we’ve been writing, illustrating and commissioning all have one thing in common: they encourage independent thinking. We want children to question what they are seeing, hearing and feeling and, in doing so, to become kind, empathetic, accepting and curious about the world around them. Whether they grow up to be passionate about the environment, inclusivity, politics or even publishing (!), we want them to be able to be brave and think for themselves. That’s how we are helping to make this a better world. Sam Hutchinson, Publisher b small publishing ltd.
