Personalised Books

At Mind+Matter we deal with the many problems and situations that face young children in a fun and unique way.

We have developed uniquely personalised books. We collaborate with leading child psychologists and non-profit organisations to structure stories that initiate positive behavioural development and improve young lives.

Our software development enables actual photos of the child and their friends and family to feature at the centre of each story.

This level of personalisation is proven to enhance message effectiveness.
