What's Inside?

Our children's packages entail carefully curated, unique English books that encourage ages 3 to 12 to read in eight meaningful ways ... see below! (The books are screened by parents, teachers, and kids themselves - where many are also recommended by experts in humane education.)

Each package comes with our tips to explore the humane values depicted inside each book, a couple of mindfulness cards to inspire thoughtfulness, and our signature bookmark. You can even choose the book themes you prefer! Plus, your first package includes a fun "Shhh..." door hanger that lets kids show when they're enjoying their book!

Inspiration for mindfulness

Our books are full of inspiration to help children develop their reading skills and shape a more humane world. We curate our books based on 8 themes that cultivate compassion:

  • Well-being
  • Cultural Diversity
  • Activism
  • Environmental Care
  • Peace & Gratitude
  • Animal Welfare
  • Equal Rights
  • Humane Living

A multitude of meaningful books for a thoughtful monthly read! 

Our curated collection of books are for...

Mindfulness cards

Both families and classrooms enjoy receiving our mindfulness cards with every book. Each card offers a thoughtful question, challenge or quote to encourage a greater understanding of oneself and the world around us. 


Our children's book themes cover...


It is often shocking what is taught in children’s books from other generations.  Some say you must never cry, others say how differently girls and boys should behave. Our books show the importance of being able to express a range of feelings and abilities and how to nurture a more positive well-being.

Cultural Diversity

The world is a diverse place. Children need books that reflect their culture in the real world, so they feel they are included in society. They also need windows into the lives of others that live (dramatically) differently to appreciate people outside their immediate community. Our books celebrate this diversity.


Activism can mean marching the streets to promote or protest an issue, bring change, and greater political or social justice, but it can also mean a child standing up to someone who is being unkind and demanding respect they deserve. Our books demonstrate the value in doing something about situations that are not right.

Environmental Care

We love inspiring children to care about the planet. Now more than ever it’s critical to inform them about the impact of pollution on the climate and the environment. Our books encourage both conversation and action to protect nature.

Peace & Gratitude

Teaching children to "play nicely" and say “thank you” only scratches the surface of building patience and gratitude. Learning the importance of serenity and gratefulness is not always easy. Our books demonstrate how people can live more harmoniously with themselves and together.

Animal Welfare

While children are naturally caring, especially towards animals, nurturing this compassion is important. Our books help to explain the complex relationships that we share with the animal kingdom and how we foster healthy ones.

Equal Rights

From stories on education rights to those on gender and racial equality, our books provide tools to raise children who are understanding and compassionate towards all living beings, regardless of our differences.

Humane Living

We believe that raising humane beings starts with children becoming aware of the impact that every day choices have on other people and the planet. Our books promote lifestyle options to do more good and less harm, to live a more humane and sustainable life.
