NumbersAlive! at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair!


We showcased the Hi 5! Book, Hello Numbers Discovery Pack (Hello Numbers book and the Hello Numbers backpack of small plush numbers), as well as the Number Linx puzzle. Our display was at the Forewords booth of independent USA publishers, because Hi 5! Was selected by Forewords as one of 25 best independently published children’s books of 2015.

Weirdly, Number 8 disappeared from the backpack one night at a B2B show! — see our tweet and picture. They could not figure out why 8 — I thought likely a Chinese connection, since 8 is the lucky number of China.

Oh no! 8 snuck away from the team. Is 8 on its way to China to make NumbersAlive! Lucky in China?

I also met with Y Factory folks (Sue and Ryan) of Korea. We are working on an app to release in fall 2016.
