What is Worldwide Buddies?
Worldwide Buddies is a series of fictional, educational picture books with characters from different countries. Our aim is to introduce little ones to the diverse realities and wonders of the world, early on, helping them learn different perspectives, and imagine a more beautifully complex world. Each story is lovingly created to take children through an unforgettable adventure, discover and learn, identify with the characters, giggle with their friends and laugh with their hearts.
Stories are available individually or as part of a story box, with additional crafts, games and toys around each book. These are especially designed to spark curiosity, inspire play, develop further skills and extend learning through hands-on, engaging, and (most importantly!) fun activities.
Ideal for children between the ages of 5-10
But will probably also be loved by grandma, your eldest child, the 15-year old cousins, your boss at work, and... you!
Teach children about different cultures early on, helping them grow into open-minded, 21st century adults.
Outside the box thinking
