More about the author and illustrator…

Jane Foster is a designer and illustrator whose work in screen printing has gained her wide acclaim. Her style is heavily influenced by Scandinavian trends with a nod to the 1950s and 60s. Appealing to adults and children alike, her work is bold, colourful and happy in its execution. Templar have sold over 300,000 copies of Jane's books worldwide. Jane lives near the coast in Devon in a vintage-inspired home with her partner and daughter.

My thoughts…

I love these two books! I mean, this shouldn’t really come as a surprise: they are brightly coloured, educational and fun. Even less surprising is that my daughter is obsessed with them. She is already planning our next trip to London based on Brown Bear’s itinerary, and she likes to tell us what we saw in the museums we’ve been to every time we read about Brown Bear and his friends get up to in the museum! Both books are great conversation starters and are useful for vocabulary building, in addition to helping little ones make sense of the world around them.
