Butterfly Books is a UK Social Enterprise. We are based in London, Birmingham and New york.
The butterfly is a symbol of transformation and Butterfly Books hopes to transform the way in which youngsters perceive various careers. In addition, The Butterfly Effect refers to the theory whereby a minute localised change in a complex system can have large affects elsewhere and this is the hope of Butterfly books.
Our books are picture books based on different careers and are aimed at children aged between 3 and 7 years old.
Companies are increasingly worried about the UK’s skills gap. A survey of businesses, employing a total of 1.5m people, by the CBI employers’ organisation found that 58 per cent were not confident they would have enough highly skilled staff available for their future needs.
By raising awareness of careers from a young age butterfly books aims to reduce the national skills gap problems as well as promote gender equality in all careers.
The books will open children’s minds to the broad range of career options available to them when they are older, and can also be a fun way for parents to explain to their children what they do at work!
