About our books
Raymond the Raccoon books focus on teaching children important health and wellbeing concepts, such as: balancing screen time, mindfulness, physical health, emotional wellbeing, resilience, and other similar topics. We believe teaching children these concepts from an early age will enable them to have more positive relationships, better self-esteem, and a more positive outlook on life.
Our books are suitable for children aged 3-10 years, depending on how much scaffolding is provided. Although they are suitable for older primary school aged children to read independently, they are chiefly designed to be read between an adult and a child, so that productive conversations can be had before, during, and afterwards. As such, we have included guiding questions and prompts in a ‘Parent and Teacher Notes’ section found at the end of each book.
Who are we?
We are two young professionals who have combined our varying skillsets to create educational children’s books focussed on health and wellbeing. Our vision is to use our books, which utilise captivating illustrations and engaging narratives, as a pedagogical vehicle through which to teach children about important life concepts.
The second instalment in the Raymond the Raccoon series is being published in 2023, teaching children about mindfulness strategies. The first book focussed on the key issue of balancing screen time. We are also working on more books exploring a wide range of health and wellbeing related themes, such as: physical health, emotional wellbeing, resilience, and other similar topics.
