Drawing for children is not easy.
Creating a cartoon and simplified version of a person or animal might look simple, but it's actually more challenging than copying an anathomically correct model.

In the last few years I have been fascinated by the amount of energy one can put into children illustrations and literature,
finding always new ways to convey a message in a not-obvious way.
I read countless books, followed a lot of seminars and conferences (both online and locally)
and the more I learn the more I strive to create better content for kids.

In 2017 I collaborated with preschool services and a kindergarten to create, edit and print a couple of books.

"CANTIAMO INSIEME" is a song book that was requested by a preschool service, because they wanted a style more suitable for children of that age (0-3 years old).

"La mia scuola si colora" is a project to help kindergarten children (4-6 years old) develope pre-writing skills, learn not-so-common animal names and the alphabet, while colouring.
In 2018 I published my first children's book.

This one is more suitable for 3-6 year old children as they get the final pun, while younger children (0-3 yo) understand the general meaning and focus more on the sounds and repetitions.

It's a short story to help children understands that turtles are not exactly "normal" pets! I started this project, because I wanted to prove that I was able to create a story coherent, with meaning and visually pleasing, both for adults and children.

This project is particularly dear to me as I was lucky enough to collaborate with a vet specialized in reptiles to confirm all the info I put inside the book!
