YOU DON'T NEED TO BE BIG
TO MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD
WELCOME TO POLLY PARKER PRESS!
We are a kind-hearted independent publisher dedicated to creating inspiring, beautiful books to be treasured and loved by children, young adults, and the young at heart.
We consider our books to be works of art, finding inspiration in time-honored traditions while re-imagining publishing in the technological age. Norbert, the beloved star of our picture book series, has a social media following of over 1.25 million people worldwide.
BEYOND THE BOOK
Our work does not stop with our books. We recognize that through our publications we become teachers to the world, a role that we accept with great humility and sense of responsibility. As such, we deepen the messages, experiences, and joys of our books through related creative and inspirational programs, products, collaborations, and initiatives. We view the publication of a book as an important point of departure for further meaningful work that has the capacity to transform lives.
As a mother-daughter team, we closely collaborate on all facets of the creative, educational, and publishing process with an eye for what is nurturing, delightful, and affirming. Representing 40 distinguished years in the fields of art and education, over 30 combined years of entrepreneurship, and over 10 years of marketing expertise, together we are uniquely positioned to share our skills, passions and experience for the greater good while encouraging others to do the same. Virginia is a statewide and national award-winning Artist Educator with a Master of Fine Arts Degree and a Ph.D. She has taught all ages from PK-12, to college and adults. Julie is a Phi Beta Kappa college graduate with expertise in sales, marketing and also experienced in working with children.
If you are interested in our work, then like us, you believe that quality, care, dedication, a positive outlook, personal growth, and inspired actions are important in this fast-paced world.
We invite you to step with us into a new era of children's books with old world spirit and charm.
