Whether living on the plains of Tanzania or in the bustling center of Mumbai, children everywhere share common ground—they love to play, learn, and spend time with their families; they deserve to be nurtured and protected; and they have incredible potential to contribute to the world.
Maya Ajmera weaves this central theme through all her books for children. Richly illustrated with photographs of kids from around the world, these books celebrate what makes each child unique, while affirming our shared humanity.
Board Books (Newborn to Age 3)
The fifth book in the adorable series about babies around the world, celebrates (very quietly) the pure innocence of sleeping babies. Babies everywhere—from the USA to Afghanistan, and all points in between—go to sleep in different ways, but they are all cuddled, snuggled, and loved. Goodnight, global babies!
Picture Books (Ages 3 to 7 years)
Photographs from around the world celebrate the universal joy that kids get from making music, whether they’re playing instruments, clapping their hands, stomping their feet, or singing. Music can help express one child’s feelings—or it can bring a whole community together.
