Book Dash books looking good, even if we do say so ourselves! We're exploring retail partnerships that would ultimately bring in more money to create even more beautiful, open-licensed African storybooks. However, we also want the price to be low enough that everyone can afford to buy books for their kids! Finding that sweet-spot is an adventure indeed. β€οΈπŸ“š #everychild #100books #bookdash #morebooks #salovesbooks #kidlit

Our lovely intern, Larissa, leaves us today! She has been integral in the growth of Book Dash over the last six months and we will miss her astute insight, genuine enthusiasm and her infectious smile dearly. We wish her all the absolute best on her next journey, to the US to do her PhD in indigenous African music. We feel like proud parents whose child is flying the coop, but we couldn't be more grateful to have had her with us for a short while. We gave her a Book Dash colouring book, something we're looking at making some more of! β€οΈπŸ“šπŸŽ¨
