no matter what happens

We make beautiful children’s books that show young people how to be happy with themselves, in the wonderful world we live in today.

I love how the book is so encouraging despite all the challenges that Little Tessa faces along the way to become an Astronaut. ​We learn the word "Perseverance" ...no matter how hard it is, as long as you work toward it you’ll achieve it one day !

Squirrel and the Three Bears

Enjoying autumn seemed like a great plan. But when the snow sets in, Squirrel must do whatever it takes to get ready for the cold. Will she dare to ask for help?

Squirrel is far from perfect, but we learn to love her for this. She is the only Squirrel brave enough to approach the Bears, who end up being much friendlier than we would expect. This is a book about how asking for help is actually the most courageous thing you can do.
