The Little Beanie Bear series, written and illustrated by local Hong Kong author Carmen Lee, are a set of board books about a young Beanie Bear that many young readers can relate with!
As a mother to young children herself, Carmen has front row seats into the mindset of small children. She uses relatable topics and themes to introduce our young readers concepts around humility, kindness, responsibility, and sustainability.
In book #5, Beanie Bear's Birthday, Beanie Bean and his friends learn that you don't always have to buy new stuff when it comes to gifting. There are many sustainable options to gift-giving that is both kind to the planet, and loved by the recipient.
