These are available as a monthly subscription that will take your children on a journey month by month, sharing magical stories that will feed their imagination and wonder, allowing them to see the world and discover and learn new things.
In the June book, What Makes Hippos Fly?, a cold and rainy day turns into an imaginative adventure. For young children, communication and language development is important and this story encourages them to express themselves. As the story unfolds we see boredom fostering creativity, with the child envisioning an exciting high-flying drama through their binoculars.
Using their imagination helps children to experiment and try new ways of doing things, and this boosts critical thinking and creative problem-solving.
beans&sparks books are designed to engage children and empower them through the story. The collection is structured using the EASY framework – Emotions, Adventure, Science, Creativity– and What Makes Hippos Fly? focuses on ‘creativity’ and explores the power of imagination.
For those of you wondering, the name beans&sparks was inspired by all those little trinkets and treasures our children seem to collect. Just a pocketful of pebbles, shells, or beans can spark great conversations with our own little treasures. These modest collections represent invaluable moments of fascination and discovery. Every child’s natural sense of wonder should be nurtured, embraced and made into memories and fanciful tales – and that’s how beans&sparks came to be!
