About this project
Imagine growing up with the true belief that you are capable of anything at all. What a beautiful gift to give our children.
Hardcover, 32 pages, full colour illustrations, professionally printed.
'Anything At All' is a picture book for young children. It is about a young girl who grows up with such a strong belief in herself that she knows she can do anything she puts her mind to. In the end we find this self belief was something that came from her dad's belief in her, no matter how crazy her ideas and ambitions! There's no limit to the potential in our young ones and what they can achieve if we show them how to truly believe in themselves.
It is a simple, rhyming story that is easy to read. There is plenty of room to explore and delve into the gorgeous illustrations. Let your child's imagination run wild or simply enjoy a quick bedtime story.
Erin - I am a daughter, a mother, a wife, an animal lover, boxer and a wedding celebrant! 2 years ago I moved with my family to a beautiful property in Cowaramup, Western Australia where we enjoy the country life I have always dreamed of.
I have been lucky enough to grow up with parents who believed in me wholeheartedly and it is my goal as a mother to instill this same belief in my beautiful daughter. Writing is something I have always enjoyed and this is a story that has lived inside me for a long time. I couldn't be more excited to work with such a talented illustrator and see it come to life!
Mieke - I’m an author-illustrator living in Margaret River, Western Australia. I enjoy being active and exploring the outdoors, ocean swimming, trail running and surfing the challenging waves that brought me to the West. I’m part of the local circus school, tumbling through the air and giving me the idea to make life itself a juggling act. I balance a part-time career as a physiotherapist with part-time illustrating and creative writing.
I appreciate the role that books play in sparking imagination, curiosity and creativity as well as developing early language and literacy skills. I believe books are key to fostering relationships between children and family, teachers and friends – all the while inspiring a love of lifelong reading.
My illustrations are generally done with watercolours, which allows a playful use of colour and a freedom for the paint to bend and flow with a sense of fun and movement. Each new text I illustrate provides an opportunity to weave words with colour so that together they tell the story
