About the Books

Flip, Flippie and Friends is a series of early-learning children’s books that has been produced to entice and teach South African children in a way that is interesting and FUN and where possible, in their mother tongue.

Flip, the ‘mother’ or ‘teacher’ figure, takes Flippie and his friends through entertaining twists and turns as they learn concepts in story form in the titles 1-2-3, A-B-C, Shapes and Colours, Seasons and Opposites. Time and Health, our next topics, are in production.
