Stories kids want to read.

"Henry loves reading the My First Science Textbooks series and the Science Wide Open series. He loves reading about the periodic table, and at 4 years old can recognize many elements. Reading about the women scientists and pronouncing their names is also a favorite of his. As parents, we love the questions these books elicit, and the curiosity they spark. The books make science fun and easily relatable to kids of many ages." - Rachel and Marc, WI

Mary Wissinger was born in Wisconsin where she spent most of her childhood singing, reading, and daydreaming. She dove into storytelling through acting, singing, and writing (and writing and writing).

While spending time as a classroom teacher sharing the magic of music, she saw firsthand the incredible life-changing power of stories. The stories children read become the stories they play, and then the stories they tell. 

Mary can now be found at her standing desk in St. Louis, MO, writing stories that inspire curiosity about the world and connection with others. (But don't worry, she still sings with the Saint Louis Symphony Chorus.) 

Recent projects include My First Science Textbook, a series of chemistry books for kids, and Science Wide Open, a picture book series celebrating the world-changing contributions of female scientists. Together they raised $239K and are in the top 10 of Children's Publishing Projects on Kickstarter.
