Our Mission and Philosophy

        To publish high quality, diverse, multicultural, and socially relevant books so that the gift of literature can touch readers of all races, cultures, and religions.
         We want our writers and illustrators to empower girls and boys as equals in their abilities to dream and to achieve as they have imagined. 
         Our books and illustrations should inspire readers, children, and adults, from struggling communities and world countries, to dream bigger than their circumstances. While inspiring empathy in the affluent that we are in a connected world, and somehow, we must all be a part of its solution.
         Further, we provide opportunities for aspiring and under-represented writers to publish their dream book; and small grants to teachers and parent associations to help provide resources for underserved students and classrooms.
