Artist Barbara Janman, created travel, journaling & activity books about CANADA

A couple of years ago I hurt my back and was unable to travel great distances so visiting the local provincial events and sights was the extent of my adventures. When my husband and I travel, I like to write a short journal about our experiences, when and where we go, what we see, who we meet.

I have visited many of the places I draw, but not all.  And the places I haven't, I will be - and I'll be taking my book with me to journal my trip!

Barbara Janman, not only creates these wonderful activity books; In 2010, she was the first Canadian (and the first Woman) to be awarded Intermediate International Carver of the Year by the International Wildfowl Carvers Association.  Today, she's moved her attention to carving soapstone.  You can find her original soapstone carvings here:  https://www.originalstoneart.com/

Frequently asked questions
Do the pictures come colored?

No, the pictures come ready for YOU to color them with your own creative flair.  The colored pictures shown are just to show what's possible.

Did you draw all of the pictures?

Yes, I did and loved doing it.

Are these books just for kids?

They're for kids of ALL ages!  What we've found is that home schools love to use these books to guide and teach their kids.  Adults and seniors love them too.  For many who have traveled the provinces, it's like a trip down memory lane.  They have an opportunity to relive their own experiences.  Which is wonderful for memory, mind and imagination stimulation.  And for people who haven't visited specific areas yet, it's wonderful learning & exploration.

Custom and personalised orders

Yes, I would be happy to!  All we need is the name of the person you'd like it to be addressed to when you complete your order.

Do you offer discounts on large bulk orders?

We would be happy to speak with you about this to see what we can offer you.

Do you support charities with your books?

Yes, absolutely we do.  A portion of our sales is always tithed back to supporting community.  Let us know what you have in mind and we'll see what we can come up with together.

Is my town on the map?

It may be!  And if it's not, personalize your book by marking the location of your town on the map, yourself.
