I love them myself, though it would seem a shame not to share them with a little person. So they would make a cheery present for my friend's little one...

As you know from Instagram I love your work... my boy is 5 mths old and these would be perfect... I am crossing everything xxx good luck xxx

My 8 month Son would love these. He already enjoys your abc and 123 books for their beautiful, colourful, high contrast illustrations and rhyming sounds.

We've also bought them for 5 of his friends at Christmas and the parents loved them.

I have been a fan of your work for many years (when you began making cards for Habitat). So I was thrilled to find you branching out to Childrens books as your style it perfect for them.

Oh I would love to win these for my gorgeous baby girl who is 16 weeks old tomorrow. When I'm not on maternity leave I work in a library and your board books were always my choice to put on display as they are so gorgeous! They never stayed on display long- someone always grabbed them! I also follow you on Instagram and love seeing your posts (I'm Mrsdear2013) ��

My little girl Bebe loves books, she's a huge fan of bold graphics – her current favourite is Moomins, which I also love, but I could definitely do with some new options… I've been reading the same book to her for about three months! Beautiful work, Jane :)

Beautiful books!! My 5 month old daughter loves big picture board books and your illustrations are really cute to boot! Would love to add these to her growing book collection.

My 15-month-old daughter Betty would love these and we'd love to have them in our house! She absolutely adores books and I'm currently making her the soft toys from your sewing kit so I'm sure she'd love to see her new friends popping up in these books!

Fingers crossed!

I love this and my 18mo Lateefa will love this too! She's repeating the last syllable I say so I cannot wait when I say 'shoe' and she'll repeat with 'uuuu'.

I have a niece. I've never had a niece before. She's small and pudgy and has somehow managed to outgrow her 1-3 months clothing. I see her everyday but only Through pictures. She lives in America in a state known for cheese and drinking. I live in London and occasionally I enjoy cheese and drinking. I haven't met her yet. Not properly, I don't know when I will, or sometimes it feels like if I will. But, all the more, this makes me want to be the cool English auntie, the one with the funny accent who will always look after her and always treat her. I want to show her the intricacies of the world, colours and textures and animals of all kinds, but I also want her to appreciate simplicity, the basics and monochrome. I want to teach her now, before the world gets involved. Your collection of books seem to do just that. The fun vibrancy and simple pleasures. Let's educate her together? Thank you xxx

Hi Jane. I'm Luka and I'm nearly 7 months old. I've been readings books for about 6 months. I love awesome illustrations and there are lots of books out there that just aren't my sippy cup of milk! I love bears... Brown bears, panda bears & especially polar bears. I also love kites, kittens and ducks. I'd love to share these books at bedtime with my mummy & daddy & koko the cat. My wee fingers are crossed xoxo

Rachel Green said...

Your books are beautiful. I will share them with my beautiful family and treasure them in our collection. Please send me some for free!

Greedy Nan said...

These would be perfect for my grandchildren. So good to want to read when they're small and give them the habit of a lifetime. You'll never be bored if you have a book.

Gorgeous! I'd win them to give to my lovely friend who is pregnant for the first time and drowning in 'practicality' purchases. These would add to the charming cuteness pile :-)

My 3 babies would love these, Stan is 3, Maggie is 1 and Freddie is 5months old.

They all love books ❤️ and these would be a great addition to our bookshelf xx

Lizzie said...

Congratulations, Jane! I know a small boy (my baby nephew), just turned one, who is busy learning his first words. He would really love these.

Me said...

Oh that is SO adorable!

I wish I win these books because I am French and I definitely want my kids to speak English. These lovely books would be a great gift to make them speak English and learn easily and in a fun way! :)

Love your work, Jane! (Still working on the animal toy kit :-D)

As a fellow Orla Kiely fan I stumbled across your work and have followed you ever since. I have the Orla Kiely stem wallpaper in the nursery and am due to have my little girl this week. This would be the best present ever, being given such beautiful designs from the actual designer...I promise I would share them with her Jane and treasure them forever!

Love, Michelle xx
