Sweet Cherry adds to Numberblocks and Alphablocks early learning book range

Independent children’s book publisher, Sweet Cherry is releasing more than ten new lines in its licensed range of Numberblocks and Alphablocks books later this year.

The new books – aimed at 3-6 year-olds – feature lift-the-flap books and four wipe-clean books, plus a second edition of the Numberblocks Christmas sticker activity book.

September will also see the release of the latest Numberblocks Annual for 2023, marking the fourth edition of Sweet Cherry’s bestseller.

“It’s amazing to be part of such a fast growing kids’ brand that champions learning being fun,” commented Maya Maraj, head of licensing and commercial at Sweet Cherry (pictured with publisher, Sanjee de Silva). “We love working with the brands’ fantastic creator, Joe Elliot, and the team at Alphablocks Ltd and Larkshead Licensing. We are excited to share our new publishing with the dedicated fanbase who really connect with the brands’ values and our own.”

Lindsey Chester, senior licensing and retail manager at Larkshead Licensing, continued: “I can’t wait to see these brilliant new books in the marketplace that I know will engage and delight little learners. It’s been a super rewarding journey for the Larkshead team developing this range with Sweet Cherry and Alphablocks Ltd that reflect the joy, playfulness and of course learning of these two very special brands.”

Sweet Cherry Publishing was recently awarded Children’s Publisher of the Year 2022 at the IPG’s Independent Publishing Awards and Small Press of the Year 2021 at The Bookseller’s British Book Awards.
