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.
Illustration by Nicholas Brancati
We would like to acknowledge that the land where we learn, live, 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 am a local illustrator who creates mixed material collage artwork as well as numerous other illustrative and design projects. I like to use an assortment of materials from scrap papers and fabric pieces to a whole host of other up- cycled materials. They all form the palette from which I work from. I like to expose the textures, patterns, colours, and typography found within the various materials.
Nicholas Brancati Studios is a personal creative company I have established over the years. In doing so it has provided me with an outlet to share my artistic work with others,
in the form of greeting cards, limited edition art prints, and various commissioned projects, while at the same time supporting my creative passions and dreams.
