Mum-preneur behind the books
Being curious about books that help parents inspire kids to love reading - and build a more compassionate world - I was surprised how buried these resources seemed to be, but also how plentiful!
As a busy "expat" mum living in Belgium with 2 young kids, as much as I love my library and book shop visits, I wanted even easier access to books that cover topics like equality, eco-activism, and humane living. I learnt many other parents feel the same way, teachers too.
Every day I see an even bigger reason to expose the type of books and educators that give parents the resources to show kids what we need to do today to enjoy every single tomorrow.
This and a Belgo-Canadian background in non-profit communications, a Masters in environmental decision-making, and small business savoir-faire is what motivated the launch of Little Humane Books to inspire a new generation of compassionate readers!
Reading kids books is now more enjoyable than ever! So if you're a like-minded parent, family relative, teacher, friend, or caregiver and you believe in the magic of books, join our community!

The full story
To learn more about how Little Humane Books came to be check out our interview with the founder of The Village, a resource providing great info to young international families to raise thriving kids.
This spring, we welcomed Liz Laroche to our team as Outreach Manager. Liz found us in her own search to share stories with her daughter that inspire interesting conversations and explore the beauty and diversity of our world.
As a child, her favorite book was ‘The Handy Girls’ by Peggy Kahn which inspired a sense of independence, confidence and a can do attitude. She's worked in public health, with the US Coast Guard, and Liz is passionate about environmental protection and sustainable living. We're so delighted to have her on board!
We're thrilled to announce you can find our book service in over a dozen schools across Belgium and the list is growing! Beyond these borders, we'll also be delighted to send you our inspiring books no matter where you live!
Basically, the word on the street is we find really great kids books! So if you would like to hear about our books, special offers and events, sign up for our news!
And, in case you missed it, a little while ago, we held a speaker series on Humane Parenting to offer inspiration, knowledge, and practical advice to raise children as mindful humane leaders. The speakers included some of our favourite children's authors and education experts and each gave wonderfully insightful talks. Watch the replays at EmbracingHumaneParenting.com
