What on Earth Books to be distributed by Walker Books Australia

Walker Books Australia is delighted to announce that they have taken on the Australian distribution of award-winning UK publishing house, What on Earth Books, beginning August 2019.

What on Earth Books publishes nonfiction books that engage children's natural curiosity and passion for learning. They offer readers diverse perspectives on the world and help them connect the dots to build a lifetime of knowledge.

What on Earth Books believes that for many, if not most, children, the real world is even more fascinating than anything you can make-up. A love of learning comes before a love of reading. Reading should always be considered as means to an end – not an end in itself.

“A love of learning provides a magical channel through which the natural curiosity we are born with can flow without limit”, says world history author Christopher Lloyd, founder and CEO of What on Earth Books. “And since most of the jobs our children will be doing in the future haven’t even been invented yet, it’s essential that they grow up with a love of learning all about the world around them, so they can adapt and change as the world changes around them”.

“Walker Books shares exactly the same values as us, a passion for learning, reading and high-quality children’s literature. That’s why we are so incredibly proud and excited to have Walker Books present our list to readers in Australia and New Zealand,” continues Christopher Lloyd.

“From the moment I met Chris and the team from What on Earth Books, I knew they were making something really special. We are really excited to bring their list to our Australian and New Zealand booksellers for the first time,” says Angela Van Den Belt, President of Walker Books Australia and New Zealand.
