Publisher's Note


Across languages and across borders, stories are magic. Storytelling connects us to each other and to who we are. In the hands of a child, a book is a portal to infinite possibility. When a beautifully crafted story engages a child’s natural curiosity, their world expands, as does their sense of self.


Blue Dot Kids Press is proud to present our debut season, a purposeful list of five beautifully crafted stories, written and illustrated by impassioned storytellers and artists from around the world.


Blue Dot Kids Press grew from the desire to publish stories that engage young readers’ innate sense of wonder and empathy, connecting them to our global community and the pale blue dot we call home. With irrepressible hopefulness and courage, we aspire to embolden the next generation of global citizens with empathy, resilience, creative thinking, and the shared value of nature and its stewardship.


An independent, mission-driven children’s book publisher located in San Francisco, United States, and Wellington, New Zealand, our purpose is evident in every book we publish—as well as in our business practices. We believe that business can be a force for good, which is why we prioritize sustainability in everything we do. We’re a proud member of 1% for the Planet with a commitment to contribute 1% of our annual sales to important environmental causes.


Thank you to the many talented people who contributed their wisdom and gifts to the launch of our debut season. To our new readership, of every generation, we look forward to taking this journey together with you.


With gratitude,


Heidi Hill
