Platypus Media books have the exuberant, classy look that people expect in museum-quality books. The Look What I See! series is a perfect match for our Children's Discovery Center, and If My Mom Were a Platypus gives our young visitors just the information they need to reinforce what they have seen in the museum.

Platypus Media books give us a fun way to help meet curriculum objectives in reading, science, language arts and social studies. The kids love them-- and the free curriculum-based Activity Guides available at PlatypusMedia.com do a lot of the work for us!

Caring parents should be delighted with the low-key style of these books and the gentle way they foster love and respect between parent and child. You can count on the sign of the platypus to please the child and draw a family together.

What's really exciting about this line of books is that children from every background can relate to them. Platypus Media books have captured the values of close-knit families from many different perspectives.

Breastfeeding is indeed a family affair and the Platypus Media books acknowledge the importance of Dad and brothers and sisters to the nursing mother and baby. Each book portrays the breastfeeding family in true-to-life situations that provide practical examples of loving guidance in a context that is both inspiring and fun for all.

Parents who are responsive to their children's needs often find themselves swimming upstream against the culture. Platypus Media books encourage parents as they create families that are close-knit. Through sharing stories, Platypus Media is building a caring community where children and parents alike can thrive.

There's more to good health than regular check-ups. Security, love and caring boost any child's chance at a lifetime of well-being. The values portrayed in Platypus Media Books are just what the doctor ordered!

For parents who want the very best for their children, breastfeeding is the place to start. Since not every family has a breastfeeding tradition, I use Platypus Media books to inform families - from a variety of perspectives - how breastfeeding can be incorporated into daily lives. Every family member can see how closeness pays off.
