One thing that helps a child to develop a fondness for reading is the feeling that she could be the main character in her favorite books. Children enjoy re-imagining their own world and exploring different life experiences.

For this reason, we publish children's literature focused on theAfrican American culture.

NadandaTheWordmaker, which won a "Best Book Award", is the story of an intellectually versatile fourteen year old girl who invents words as a means of fitting in with the most popular school cliques.
