We strive to give voice to those who share our respect for the professionalism and compassion of teachers and who support teachers’ efforts to help children become literate, empathetic, knowledgeable citizens. Our authors are exemplary educators eager to support the practice of other teachers through books, videos, workshops, online courses, and most recently through explicit teaching materials. Our commitment to our work and customers’ enthusiastic response to our offerings has made us the leading publisher in this area.
During my teaching years, I felt strongly about the importance of systematic phonics instruction, but I was dissatisfied with the decodable books that were available. The only decodable I could find were low quality and contained controlled texts that lacked meaning and comprehensibility. I wanted decodable books that would enable students to successfully apply phonics skills while enjoying meaningful reading experiences. If I was going to introduce children to the important world of reading and books, I wanted to motivate them with beautiful literature that they could read independently. I wanted "real" books with decodable texts. I founded Flyleaf Publishing in 1998 with a mission to create fine-art illustrated, authentic, and engaging decodable literature to help students and teachers bridge the gap between phonetic decoding and fluent independent reading.

Stenhouse provides quality professional learning resources by teachers, for teachers. Our goal is to offer PreK–12 educators a set of proven strategies from which they can choose and adapt to their students’ needs and their school culture. All of Stenhouse’s resources, ranging from literacy and math instruction to classroom practice, are grounded in a philosophy of education that respects both teacher and learner. They are designed to integrate theory, research, and practice in an accessible manner, enhancing educators’ professional knowledge and building their students’ skills as readers, writers, and thinkers. Stenhouse is a subsidiary of Highlights for Children. Stenhouse Publishers started in 1993 with two employees in a one-room attic walk-up in York, Maine. That fall we published 6 titles.
The bookshop is an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. We believe that bookstores are essential to a healthy culture. They’re where authors can connect with readers, where we discover new writers, where children get hooked on the thrill of reading that can last a lifetime. They’re also anchors for our downtowns and communities. As more and more people buy their books online, we wanted to create an easy, convenient way for you to get your books and support bookstores at the same time. If you want to find a specific local bookstore to support, find them on our map and they’ll receive the full profit of your order.
Smith and Kraus Publishers, founded in 1990 by Marisa Smith and Eric Kraus, is the premier U. S. publisher of contemporary trade theater books. Currently, S&K boasts over 700 titles in print and many hundreds of e-books available on all major ebook platforms.
S&K is the most trusted source for books about theater—from collections of monologues and scenes for use in class or at auditions, to contemporary and classic play collections, to acting technique and career resource titles. In addition, we have a substantial list of books for children and teachers. Smith and Kraus have also created the Productions In Print (PIP) Series, a project whose purpose is to make every theater lobby into a mini bookstore and sell the current play on stage to the audience as they leave or arrive at the theater.
30.Iron and Air
We're motivated like most who can't get enough of these machines in our lives: to roll out of bed, risk, and chase the life we're looking for. Motorcycles have a way of moving us towards that. While the machine is the thread that connects us, it’s the places it takes us that often create the greater stories of our lives. We seek to tell those stories in a timeless publication that had been missing from our own coffee tables: a quarterly, heavy-stock, 114-page storyteller capturing the chase. You might be accustomed to what a motorcycle-based publication should look like and sound like. At first, you'll likely be confused....and then hopefully delighted, enjoying this rag kicking around your world as much as we do.
