Wallymeets produces bilingual picture books, bilingual e-books, audio books, and animations for children between 3 to 5 years old. All kids books are bilingual and each bilingual kids book comes with two FREE audio books to help children and their parents learning a second language.
Wallymeets works in close collaboration with educational experts and wants to help parents and children to playfully learn a second language. Language learning with bilingual picture books in combination with talking books is a very efficient and economic way to teach a child a second language.
Isgar Bos, born in Amsterdam 1972, started writing and publishing children books to rediscover timeless exploration and step out of the fast life where one can easily become blind to the many small marvels of existence. Isgar’s travels, as an airport designer and avid sailor, have enabled him to understand that while children around the world may have superficial differences, they are all united by curiosity and wonder. Isgar created Wally, a very young whale, to share positive and innocent awe about the world with children everywhere.
In 2008 Isgar set up his own publishing company – Wallymeets – dedicated to language learning and named after the main character of the books series. His first bilingual book on the list was Wally meets Picasso.
The Wallymeets press list now includes 3 titles in English and one of the following second languages: Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Catalan, Japanese, Dutch and German. Our first Braille edition in under construction.
