Gifting kids books has never been so easy, or felt so good!

We offer curated picture book collections, handpicked by a beloved school librarian who knows what kids love.

Help the kids in your life discover the joy of reading, explore the world, and create lasting memories.

For every five books we sell, we donate one to a superhero teacher in an underfunded school.

Our Vision

No matter the circumstances, every child deserves access to diverse, world-expanding stories — stories about dinosaurs and sparkly dresses and food trucks and dragons and mermaids and puppies. 

These stories should reflect the world in which they live and give them windows to the world beyond.

We created this company to give every child the opportunity to have access to amazing stories.

Please share our mission to anyone in your world who's looking for great gifts for kids, wants to share the wonder of books with the next generation, and loves the idea of giving back to the community.
