Other Life Lessons is a small publishing company based in Toronto, Canada founded in 2018 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 tougher topics, including entitlement, grief and why they left home during the week to go to work. They believe life is an incredible adventure but there are speed bumps along the way. 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.
