Our Little Readers

Our goal at 3+1 is to publish books that will entertain the WHOLE family, but specifically, our picture books are written (and illustrated) for preschool-1st grade.

Ages 3-7

We love this age. Watching kids "discover" reading is why teachers become teachers– That "AHA" moment in a child's mind where words take on meaning and new worlds open up… is why we publish books.


Siblings will sit in on books for younger siblings and even request them long after they have outpaced the reading level. Why? Books are powerful in attaching themselves to feelings and memories.

Moms and Dads

Moms and dads make all the difference in the world in training up lifelong readers, so we publish books that appeal to the kid in all of us, especially the adult kids who do the reading.

The Pets

Libraries often use dogs in reading sessions to help facilitate kids learning to read. They calm anxiety and help word flow freely. We love our pets here at 3+1 and all of our stories have pets in them!
