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:
From stories on voter rights to those on gender and racial equality, our books provide tools to raise children who are understanding and compassionate towards all people, regardless of our differences.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 people living harmoniously together.
It is often shocking what is taught in children’s books from other generations. Some say you must be brave and not cry, others even say how differently girls and boys should behave. Our books show we all have a range of feelings and abilities and how to nurture both our physical and mental health.
