Book series, by Mila Publishing, is also launched with its own “SECRET SUITCASE” app. Proceeds of book sales will benefit children in developing countries.

Mila Publishing, based in Geneva Switzerland, announced today the release of their first book, “Maks and Mila on a Special Journey.” In making the announcement, first time author Merel Bakker said, “I hope that Maks & Mila will contribute to a world where children feel happy and strong and know how to take care of themselves, others, and the world as a whole. This book was an inspiration to write, and I hope it will also be an inspiration for all the children and their families that read it.”

Written in a specially designed award winning font to help children with dyslexia, “Maks & Mila On a Special Journey,” is the first book in an upcoming series of beautifully illustrated books, which use the power of reflection and repetition, to help children develop joy, compassion, gratitude, generosity and self-confidence in their lives. Through uplifting narrative and positive reinforcement, the storylines of Maks & Mila are written in a way to help educate children between ages 4 to 8 in ongoing child development.

In the first book of the series, Maks & Mila On a Special Journey, we see these two loveable characters embark with their SECRET SUITCASE. The SECRET SUITCASE is a key component in the book, and the series, as it encourages children, their storytellers and parents to join them for a special journey. Combined with powerful, eye-catching and memorable illustrations, the beautifully designed Maks & Mila On a Special Journey book immediately captures one’s imagination.

The Maks & Mila book series comes with its very own iPhone/iPad SECRET SUITCASE app. This free app, which perfectly adds to the storyline, empowers children to be creative and provides a unique platform for child development. Like the book, the free APP also features the special font that makes it accessible for children with dyslexia.

The Maks & Mila book series is also devoting portions of its sales in the philanthropic arena, by seeking to support children and schools in need. For every 1 out of 6 books sold, one book will be donated in both developed and developing areas where children and schools cannot access and afford to buy Maks & Mila books.
