About Other Life Lessons
Other Life Lessons is a small publishing company based in Toronto, Canada founded by Meaghan Hadwyn and Niki Snjaric. It was established by two moms who were tired of only reading their kids stories about cute fluffy animals and unicorns. While those types of stories are lovely, they also wanted books that would help explain difficult topics, including entitlement, grief and why they left home during the week to go to work. They believe that life is a crazy, beautiful and incredible adventure but there are speed bumps along the way and moments that can be hard or unexpected. With their honest children's books, they share with children, as well as adults, the often-unspoken truths and struggles all of us face as we grow. Because if life is an adventure, we’re all exploring it together.
