Self-published author Tracy-Lee Easthorpe has written her first in a series of interactive children's books.

Obnoxious Naledi and the Poppysmic Fairy is the story of feisty six-year-old Naledi who is learning new ways to have her voice heard.

Easthorpe says the book is about the empowering nature of self-love and authenticity.

She says it's intended to teach young people an important lesson, while also sparking a curiosity for words and a passion for reading.

Easthorpe is an accountant living in Johannesburg by day and a bibliophile every other opportunity she gets.

She says she's always wanted to be an author from an young age and encourages all parents to share the joys of reading with their little ones.

Children learn language through reading and through listening and context. We increase our vocabulary by being exposed to words.
