We're a bunch of children's book enthusiasts!

We're a women-led company that started in 2019 as an effort to help authors like you make books that are worthy of a child's time. (If it can't hold our attention, it will never work on a five-year-old.) That's why we have each of our authors work with our full team of experts throughout the process. Because we don't want to just make your book, we want to create the BEST book we can!
