This children’s book has been launched as yet another in Schmitt-Bylandt’s line of inspirational and easily digestible children’s literature, all of which is based on her experiences as a mother. Her books are designed for children who are just learning to read and for families who enjoy spending time together while reading.

Studies have shown that reading to children at a young age and introducing them to moral lessons early on can be instrumental in the development of a healthy imagination and social skills. At ages 2-10, children are especially open to learning and absorbing information from the media they are exposed to, which is why quality children’s literature is so important.

Schmitt-Bylandt has crafted a story in this book that features a pair of unlikely friends, a lion and a giraffe, learning to accept and celebrate the differences between them and work together. It also emphasizes the importance of socialization and academic curiosity through a storyline that sees these characters exploring the world around them.

At 42 pages long, this book is perfect as a bedtime reader for pre-K children, or as a first short novel for first and second graders. Along with her other books, this one will instill in its readers positive lessons and teach them to cooperate with those around them, no matter how different they might be.

Astrid Schmitt-Bylandt is a public speaker and mother of twins who began her career as a children’s author during the pandemic, penning several books which draw on her experiences as a parent while in lockdown. She seeks to write books that her own children would enjoy above all else, which makes for high-quality and insightful writing

Despite its recent release, ‘Ratzeputz and Zuri’ has already achieved universal praise and garnered five-star reviews. One Amazon reviewer said, “A lovely tale of friendship, proving that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, you can always support each other and follow your dreams!”
