International Book Award for 5 Little Bears

Leanne Murner, founder and creative force behind educational toy store 5 Little Bears has just won the New York Big Book Award in the nature children’s category for her first children’s book, Franki and the Banksia. “The book is about one of my sons asking his Poppy John questions like ‘Why are the birds there, why are they doing this or that?’,” Leanne says proudly. She also offers educational timber memory games, dominoes, light boxes, and whole eco-system information boards introducing kids to Australian fauna and flora.
