about us

.... we’re excited to share our passion with you!
— The WTBA team

Hello, and welcome to WTBA—a conversation about books and little kids.


Both of which, of course, are endlessly wonderful topics!

Our core passion is picture and chapter books and our primary motivator is emotional resilience, or you could say building happiness. And, by popular demand, we include quite a lot of lifestyle and parenting posts—we hope you enjoy the mix!

Joan Walker and Kim Fulcher co-founded the site back in 2015 as a resource for parents, educators, grandparents, aunts, uncles and anyone who loves and nurtures a child. It has morphed somewhat as we’ve progressed, but the books we choose are always user friendly, always with an end in mind and always jam-packed full of life! They're sometimes serious, sometimes full of fun, sometimes gallery-worthy or just plain cool.

Emotional resilience is about owning happy emotions as well as the sad.
Jesse Fulcher

We look for books that kids and adults love to read, books that strengthen, elevate, inspire and help to grow strong, resilient kids; books that help to build up a complex and flexible set of moral responses; books that give experience with choices both good and bad, that let the child see how choices impact on more than just the decision maker.

The site is a labour of love for all of us, and we’re excited to share our passion with you. We hope you call in often, not just when you’re looking for a book to buy—because our biggest wish is that you find the site interesting, fun and helpful.
