About Us

Committed to learning and literacy.

From our founding in 2009, Red Chair Press has been dedicated to publishing books to engage children in stories that provide models for strong character and good behavior. By working with only the highest-quality artists from around the world, we ensure our books appeal to a wide range of readers.

Red Chair Press creates more than 40 new titles a year under three imprints:
