Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Books that celebrate the richness and diversity of our world today.

Frances Lincoln first began to publish books for children in 1983. Like her adult list, Frances’s first children’s books reflected her keen interest in art and the great outdoors, as well as visual storytelling. Boasting the multimillion-copy best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series and the #1 New York Times Best Seller This Book Is Anti-Racist of the Empower the Future series, FLCB is one of the world’s most respected creators of picture books and gift titles that celebrate cultural diversity, as well as narrative nonfiction. The list is strongly supported by bookshops, libraries, and institutions internationally, and we pride ourselves in working with some of the world’s most innovative illustrators and storytellers.
