Pat-a-cake is Hachette Children's Group's new baby, preschool and early years imprint launching in March 2017. So far, we have 33 titles planned for launch year, plus licensed properties.

Our aim is to publish bold, bright and visually strong books with well-crafted, multi-layered content. Texts will be easy-to-use for least confident parents and aligned with child development endorsed by Pat-a-cake's very own Child Development expert, Dr Jaqueline Harding.

We will publish across five key stages:

- Sensory baby (birth - 18 months)

- Talkative toddlers (18 - 36 months)

- Preschool Playtime (3 years +)

- Ready for school (4 years +)

- School success (5 years +)

Pat-a-cake will take children and parents on a magical journey from sharing the very first baby book to watching little ones read all by themselves. The adventure begins March 2017.
