Inventive Books for Children & Parents
 
Informative
Inspiring
Enriching
Problem Solving
Conflict Resolving
Welcome

Our books help children work through those life experiences we adults call ‘growing up.’ They can be as universal as getting a pet or being afraid of bees. Or they can be as complicating as learning about disability or being an adopted sibling. In each we try to tell a story that kids and their parents will see as honest, informative and leave them smiling at the end.
