Kids Are Kind Publishing is on a mission to make positive chapter books for elementary kids the norm.

We’ve advanced as a society to say, “No More!” to bullying, to be inclusive, and bold in our values. As teachers and parents, we work so hard to teach children right from wrong, to be courteous and respectful. We help them to feel empowered, capable, and confident. To be kind. Yet a lot of existing chapter books exemplify the exact opposite.

We’re working to change that.
