Inspire, learn, and grow!
Kinder Books facilitates learning and growth, building on children's natural curiosity to develop their sense of self through a joyful and fun exporation of books. Founder and owner Anne Uebbing connects with the community and supports education by offering children's literature that explores nuanced ideas on various topics.
This is a not a standard collection of cookie-cutter titles, it is a highly curated selection of unique stories, and Anne has personally read every one of them at least once. This commitment to curation is why Anne is much more than a book merchant; she is a literacy consultant.

We recognize and respect that the land where we learn, live, work and play on is the traditional and unceded territory of the Halq'eméylem speaking Coast Salish peoples. This refers to a language group that more widely encompasses the Indigenous people who used and continue to use this land, and includes nations such as the Qayqayt, qʼʷa:n̓ƛʼən̓(Kwantlen), Katzie,kʷikʷəƛw̓əm(Kwikwetlem), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm(Musqueam), Stó:lō, sc̓əwaθn məsteyəxʷ(Tsawwassen), and Tsleil-Waututh.
I have been a curious observer throughout my entire life. Having originally grown up on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, I lived and moved between the 3 Westernmost provinces before making Saskatchewan my home in 2001. The vast variation and contrast of deep isolated rural locations, packed urban settings and expansive prairie environment has provided many surprises, but also constant connections of common experience and drive. I love line and colour and through my art, wish to capture little glimpses of the everyday, so full of wonder, from the lenses of both the real world and imagination. Beauty can be found even in the most unlikely places, be ready and waiting to discover it.
