The idea for making a kids zine came about when my daughter, Maude was little, on a trip to the SW Library. We really love adult-made kids’ books, but I also adore kid’s creative expressions. Children have original minds that think of things differently than adults, and their art (and role-play) and writing can be so cute, beautiful, clever, funny, interesting. It made me think kids would love seeing art and writing by other kids in a book. That was some years ago. Once able to get to the project during the pandemic, it was fairly slow going collecting what you see inside here.
This is a first for this press—the children’s book sector. I may make another one next year or it may be a one-off depending on how things go. Seeing kids’ creative work as their arts slowly trickled in was a delight, so I will hope to do another.
