Personalise it...

Many special keepsake memory

books are stored out of reach of children in a safe place but are often forgotten about...

So you can now personalise one of our Nursery Times crinkly cloth newspapers that can be enjoyed by everyone, every day!


The perfect memory book gift for a baby's first year. It's light, washable and easy for babies to hold and they can engage and familiarise themselves with the photos of themselves and family members. A special tactile book that can provide some reassurance for toddlers who are attending nursery for the first time.

Then leave the rest to us...


A bit about us...

We are Jo and Nic, two friends who met working in a children's books publisher in Bath. Now, both self-employed working mums have built a business from scratch. Since our launch into retail in February 2018 we have created, illustrated, designed, written over 45 titles in the range. We've built a brand and
a website and sold our product direct to over 100 of the best independent shops in the UK and also in the USA, Chile, Peru and Ireland. In August 2022 we collaborated with Dynamic Distribution who distribute the crinkly newspapers to independent stockists in the UK and worldwide.
In between all this, we have our busy family lives with general everyday routines. We are loving and learning every bit of it. Many of our customers and stockists are doing the same which is why we all support each other as independent businesses.

I'm Jo Joof. I grew up in Sunbury on Thames and now live in Frome.
I'm a self-taught illustrator and designer with many years of experience in children's book publishing. 
I do the text and design in our titles and I have great fun thinking up the rhymes!
Being a mother of five artistic girls aged between 
9-20, I'm never
short of a bit of inspiration and help with photography and social media skills.
