Words, and pictures two little words that, together, mean a lot. A high-quality imprint for young children, words & pictures was started in 2012. The imprint encapsulates three main focuses: imagination--because opening a book should also open a child’s own imagination to possibilities; innovation--because children should be encouraged to create, not imitate; and inspiration--because books should make children want more: more books, more information, more of life itself. words & pictures represents a powerful and positive opportunity to open children’s minds to a world of discovery.
