About Us


 Head 2 Heart Books

Head 2 Heart Books Ltd is a small independent publishing company who create and produce 

thoughtful children's stories for head and heart matters.  Our beautifully illustrated rhyming children's books are

relatable and well researched, helping young children to explore their thoughts and feelings,

 think their emotions through and get conversations started.  Aimed at children 3 - 8 years old. 

Over the years our books have grown and evolved in the education sector where Head teachers, teachers,

support workers, parents, and carers have all responded extremely positively to the gentle life lessons and vibrant illustrations.  Primary schools are using these stories as a resource for Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) prompting good follow-on discussions that cover many curriculum topics.   


Our stories and their messages offer good opportunities for teaching and discussion, as well as time for reflection and learning in different aspects of emotional intelligence, values and virtues, mental health, well-being and care for the environment. These are currently areas of great interest and initiative raised by the government

and both state and independent schools.
