About Linnet's Book Shop

Linnet’s Book Shop is a self-published, family run online book shop, published under the name Laughing Linnet Publications.

Our goals are simple – we wanted to create bold, bright, engaging, interactive books for children of all ages – books that will inspire and enthuse them to explore and discover all about Nature and the Outside World.

It is true, that there are plenty of Children’s Nature Books already out there – all properly, illustrated, printed and published… but, we wanted to be different. We wanted our books to be read, engaged with… and used…

Yes. I myself have a bookshelf full of absolutely beautiful children’s nature books… but, they are not really practical. They show us the beauty of Nature or tell us Nature’s stories, but in a remote and distant way.

Laughing Linnet’s Books are designed to be battered and dogeared, dragged through the mud, scribbled on, written on, have corners folded as bookmarks… They are designed to be dragged on Nature Walks and USED by their young owners.

For that reason, i have designed all of our Nature Books to have spaces for doodling and note taking; journal pages and scrapbook pages; and tasks and activities with space for writing answers.

I have deliberately included activities to ask young minds to think and create, to explore and discover – to observe the world around them, soak in its details, draw it, collect it, and create their own Nature-inspired poetry and stories – and to create their own adventures.

So, I hope you enjoy reading and using our books as much as I enjoyed creating and illustrating them.

Happy Nature Reading,

Leila x
