Kids Map Of Canada


Unfinished Kids Map Of Canada

I am really enjoying illustrating this map, Canada is a place I have wanted to visit for a long time, I have also wanted to create an illustrated map of Canada, and here it is! Well the early stages of it. There are some countries that just have great visuals associated with them and Canada is one of them. Their map and map colours, their native animals, the nature & cities. 

Again, I am putting in the states, cities, lakes, oceans and the animals that inhabit this wonderful country.

Will post more finished images soon. I will be adding this to my kids map range - Here

Ravensberger & PAL Award

My Ravensburger map of the USA has won a PAL award. I am thrilled!

Read the review below or here



Ravensburger USA floor puzzle by Carla Daly


As I brought out this 3 by 2 foot puzzle, my little 3 year-old friend declared, The United States of America!” and proceeded to recite the Pledge of Allegiance! He loved naming the animals like lobster, moose, orca and bear and seeing where they live. Designed for children 3 years and up, this puzzle has several levels of learning to it. Young ones can increase their animal vocabulary and learn where an elk, grizzly bear or beaver might live while a little older child can read the states and  bodies of water and learn their location. As usual, the hallmark Ravensburger quality including colorful engaging graphics as well as sturdy, thick pieces allow this puzzle to stand up to classroom use too.

What have I been up to? Well, as usual I working hard getting orders out to my customers from my website.

Behind the scenes I am working on ideas for a kids animation series. This is no easy task, but is really good fun. I came across a great children's writer on Linked In, Chris McGuire. He is whipping all my character ideas into shape by  writing some great story lines for them!

As always will keep you posted on any developments.
