Bloom & Star Editions - Our publishing company BloomandStar Editions has successfully created two educational Holland themed titles. The latest publication is ABC of Holland which is a colourful children’s book in English with Dutch favourites from A to Z and will be released March 2014. The book is great for youngh travellers, (grand)parents, uncles, ants neighbours and friends visiting Holland, expat children in Holland and their loved ones abroad.

The idea originated in 2010 when we, the family Spaanderman, relocated to Bangkok, Thailand to establish our businesses. We wanted to show our daughter what the Netherlands wa all about. In 2011 Bloom & Star Editions published its first children’s book ‘Het ABC van Nederland’ of which thousands of copies have been sold and the first print-run is nearly sold out. This book has been adopted by the Dutch libraries, is for sale in numerous bookstores and in the National Museum, het Rijksmuseum.

ABC of Holland can also be purchased for educational, cultural, business, fundraising, or sales promotional purposes. For corporate and volume sales or any other request, please contact us at
