Lerner Publisher Services’ clients include Andersen Press USA, The Kane Press, ARC Press, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, and We Do Listen Foundation. LPS will add two more clients in Fall 2011: Gecko Press and Inside Pocket Books.
• Andersen Press USA (Grades PreK–4): Andersen Press USA brings some of the most well-known children's picture books that have been published in the UK to American readers. The collection includes select titles from David McKee's endearing line of Elmer books and Tony Ross's entertaining Little Princess series, as well as titles from Jeanne Willis, Satoshi Kitamura, and many other talented authors.
• The Kane Press (Grades K–4): The Kane Press books merge literature and content in a way that encourages children to read and discover how what they are learning in school relates to their everyday lives. Clever plot lines, real-life situations, engaging characters, and kid-sized dilemmas are hallmarks of The Kane Press books. Written by respected children's authors and illustrated by award-winning artists, The Kane Press books are perfect for independent reading or as part of a shared, read-aloud experience.
* ARC Press (Grades Pre-K-2): ARC Press titles build reading readiness, confidence, and literacy skills in beginning readers. Designed for students who are nearly ready or starting to read and illustrated with bold, engaging photographs, ARC Press books provide extensive picture support and predictable sentence structures for new readers. Some titles are published in both English and Spanish versions, for assisting ELL/ESL students or supporting bilingual programs. ARC Press is a division of American Reading Company, home of the Hundred Book Challenge.
* We Do Listen Foundation (Grades PreK-4): We Do Listen Foundation’s mission is to enable children to enjoy inner peace and communicate in a more effective way. The Foundation creates entertaining, educational books to help young children learn how to listen, feel good about themselves, and deal with bullies and violence.
* Gecko Press USA (Grades PreK-4): Gecko Press is a New Zealand-based independent publisher of English language editions of curiously good books from around the world. Gecko Press books are excellent in story, illustration and design, with a strong ‘heart factor’ that encourage children to love to read.
* Inside Pocket Books (Grades K-12): Independent UK publisher Inside Pocket Books publishes critically acclaimed, fun-packed stories by great new authors–some puzzling, some mysterious, and some beautifully illustrated by talented new artists. Inside Pocket Books are traditional good reads and exciting adventures for boys and girls.
