    From birth to age 6, children go through many different key stages in terms of emotional, social and cognitive development. The stories are funny, as renowned Italian children’s author Cristina Petit, paired with the drawings of famous Italian illustrators, plays with gently absurd humour to make the learning experience enjoyable for young readers. Four distinctive skill areas are identified: relationships, independence, emotions, knowledge of the world, which are key to positive cognitive, emotional and social development.


    • Four key skill areas identified by the colour of balloon on the cover.
    • Texts by Cristina Petit, a renowned Italian children’s author, drawings by famous illustrators.
    • 21 cm x 21 cm format board books for young children, paper books for older readers.

    Cristina Petit was born and raised in Bologna, where she obtained two higher diplomas, a degree in Foreign Languages and Literature, and where she continues to live. She has taught in schools from nursery age through to upper secondary and is now mother to three children which given her insights and inspiration she could never have imagined. She currently holds courses for teachers and workshops for children, and has published picture books and fiction with leading Italian publishers.
