As we grow, we learn that books are more than just fun, fictional worlds to entertain us. Stories and tales can act as lessons for us; sending us a moral message or teaching us something new.
At Tiny Owl publishing, all our books have a deeper meaning; each narrative is more than a story, it teaches the reader something they didn’t know before turning the pages.
When we turn the pages of a children’s book with a kid, we’re also opening up new worlds and cultures to our young reader. It’s never just a story; it’s a life lesson being learnt through characters, morals being developed with fictional tales, and knowledge being taught through the art of storytelling.
Each of Tiny Owl Publishing’s books tell more than a story; we’ve took a look at a few of our titles and what they teach us.
A Book To Teach Them That Nobody Believes a Liar ……. The Boy That Cried Wolf
This classic fable playfully explores the temptation in us all to exaggerate – and the risks attached! The Boy Who Cried Wolf is familiar as one of Aesop’s Fables, but its origins go much further back than that, and the versions of it are found in cultures throughout the world. In all the message is the same: nobody believes a liar.
A Book To Teach Them To Go Their Own Way & Not Be Afraid To Be Different….. The Little Black Fish
If you’re looking for a book to demonstrate the beauty of going your own way in life, not following the crowd, then The Little Black Fish is the perfect story.
Little Black Fish may be small, but he has big questions and a determination to find answers to them. While his fellow fish are too scared to do anything different from their set routine, Little Black Fish swims over the edge of the pool, into the stream and river which will show him much more of the world. He meets wonders and adventures, dangers and beauty. He makes it all the way to the sea, and finds his answers. Even though he doesn t survive to tell his own story, here it is being told to another generation, and the inspiration of it is passed on.
Samad Behrangi’s The Little Black Fish with the original award-winning illustrations of Farshid Mesghali.
A Book To Teach Them That Looks Aren’t The Most Important Thing When It Comes To Love……A Clever Mouse
A delightful story about a mouse who is rather too pleased with his own cleverness …but a bit of realising his own foolishness teaches him what he needs to learn in order to become wise and happy. A mousy love story that shows how kindness is more important than beauty.

A Book To teach Them About The Different Cultures Outside of The Western World…..Tahmineh’s Beautiful Bird
