The simple joy of reading a great book🙌
Our range has been created in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) set out by the government to help children develop and thrive. The books in the Green Bean Collection enable children to develop key skills in communication, reading, writing, maths, and creativity, preparing them for formal education.
Most parents and carers of children would agree that books and reading are essential for childhood development. Aside from the vital literacy and language skills gained through reading, books help support the mental and emotional wellbeing of children.
Perhaps, one of the most fundamental parts of reading for pleasure, is that it helps children’s imaginations to flourish by actively engaging their brains and helping them to picture people, places and worlds beyond their own.
Founded on 20+ years of child development experience, Green Bean Studios has witnessed firsthand the negative impact that excessive screen time has on young children’s development, bringing with it speech and language delays, behavioural issues, mental health problems, and contributing to the childhood obesity crisis.
Balancing screen time with healthy habits, outdoor play, exploring nature, and reading books is essential to combat children’s declining mental and physical health and the risk to their future success posed by not reading for pleasure.
