We are delighted to share the exciting news that Edutainment Licensing has been appointed as the worldwide exclusive agent for the new preschool publishing brand Eat Dirt, a franchise that spans story books and poems that encourage a love of veggies, children’s gardening, and healthy habits among kids aged two to five.
Written by US author and illustrator, Stacy Moore, the Eat Dirt stories are inspired by fond childhood memories of romping outside in the garden, munching freshly picked berries and digging in the dirt!
The veggie characters come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes each with their own unique personality. They represent all kids, all colours, all races and all body types. There are also unusual characters that don’t fit any mold, such as Green Thumb Chums (a two headed friendly garden monster), Peeve (a little pet compost pile), and unusual buggish creatures. With such a wide range of endearing characters, every child can find one or more with whom to relate.
While every veggie and animal character is different from one another, everyone is accepted and loved and valued. They each contribute their own special skills to the garden community.
Beans don’t expect tomatoes to be like beans, toads don’t expect owls to be like toads, dragonflies don’t expect worms to fly, nor do they think they are better because they can – they can’t dig holes like worms!
Everybody is good at BEING THEMSELVES and this sets the tone for children to develop a positive sense of self.
