Dear Peculiar Reader,
Welcome to the official Peculiar Press blog – a space that celebrates our passion for storytelling, bilingualism and education!
So far, we’ve loved embarking on the amazing publishing journey of producing beautiful bilingual books for children. But we believe that we are capable of so much more than that. During our journey we have had the pleasure of meeting so many people that have shared their stories and experiences with us. Whether that be children, booksellers, parents, or educators, we have all found ourselves in between cultures, languages and identities – what we like to call the Peculiar space. We are opening this space up to build a community of infinitely-different, like-minded people that share a passion for books, languages, diversity, and learning.
So what can you expect from us? We’ll be using this space to share a curated selection of articles, resources, and reflection pieces on bilingualism, literacy, and diversity and inclusion, in children’s publishing and education – all of which are at the heart of what Peculiar Press values and stands for.
We hope that you can find in here a space in which you can discuss, engage and indulge in the pleasures of being Peculiar. We can’t wait to share everything that is in store with you!
The Peculiar Press Team
