Enjoy Summer Reading


Kids always enjoy summer but they should also keep reading!

Educators encourage children to remember their books to avoid the dreaded "summer reading slide" - a loss in learning that shows up when students go back to school in September.

We heartily agree and can recommend our fantastic adventures that will appeal to the eyes and ears of eager readers.

Year of the Sheep is the 10th in our popular annual series Tales from the Chinese Zodiac.

Julie Black Belt is an energetic heroine, who practices a sport more popular than ever.

Sora and the Cloudt is our award-winning story by Felicia Hoshino, and our first Japanese bilingual book.



Artist Spotlight - Juan Calle


Juan Calle and his art studio Liberum Donum illustrated the brand new book Good Dream, Bad Dream.

Based in Bogota, Columbia, the team has a dynamic and colorful style. They collaborated with the comic book writer and fantasy fiction author Serena Valentino on their first book.

Once it was successfully funded on Kickstarter, everything was a go! Now everyone can enjoy this great adventure. The boy Julio learns that people, throughout history and around the world, have always relied on heroes and heroines to make their dreams good! Discover these historic guardians of the galaxy!

Review: Play with your Food


"Do you remember the remarkable book I talked about last year called I'm the Scariest Thing in the Jungle by David Derrick Jr.? It's become a family favorite, but now his fourth book Play with your Food has been released and it's become a rival for one of the choice top spots. My boys enjoy the fun story lines that this author always seems to master, as well as the colorful and personable illustrations...

Play with your Food will appeal to not only young dinosaur fans, but it's also sure to get any child who has been told not to play with your food giggling out loud. The story is simple and funny, and just long enough to keep the attention of even the younger readers. There's plenty of room for a child's imagination to roam in between the lines, especially if they take their time to explore the illustrated pages." - Just a Little Creativity
