My First Crinkly Newspaper
A cloth book for babies cleverly created by Jo and Nic to look and feel like a little newspaper. A six page crinkly cloth book with simple rhyming text and cute illustrations.
The range includes a selection of early learning themes including words, rhyming text, counting, alphabet, languages, colours, animals and more.
Content is fun and we try to keep it all gender neutral. With over 30 titles to choose from, there is something for everyone.
Suitable for babies aged 3+ months, newborns and a perfect book for toddlers to pack in a backpack. The tactile crinkly pages also make it a great product for children with special needs or visual impairment. Designed and created by us and made in China. CE tested and washable.
Each book packed in its own card envelope which packs flat making it the perfect gift to pop in the post. We also do gift boxes, subscriptions and personalised newspapers!

A bit about us...
We are Jo and Nic, two friends who met working in a children's books publishers in Bath. Now, both self employed working mums who have built a business from scratch. In just over two years we have created, illustrated, designed, written over 30 titles in the range. We've built a brand and a website. We have sold our product direct to over 40 of the the best independent shops in the UK and also in the US and Australia. We do all the extra little bits as well, like packing, delivering, market trading, marketing, social media and accounting. In between all this we also have our busy family lives, school runs, bills to pay and the 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.
'I can honestly say, I'm not ambitious and lack confidence. So I would never have imagined that I'd ever be running my own business....Never say never!' JO
I'm Jo Joof. I grew up in Sunbury on Thames and worked in London. In 2000 I relocated to work in Bath and then to Frome in 2001. I'm a self taught illustrator and designer with many years experience in children's book publishing. I love thinking up new ideas to fill that gap in the market with something new and interesting. Being a mother of five artistic girls aged between 7- 19, I'm never short of a bit of inspiration.
