MISSION STATEMENT:

 

At Storytime Phoenix Press, our books embrace the beauty of diversity. We believe  diversity occurs organically as a part of nature and by embracing  and sharing the beauty of our uniqueness we find our greatest strength.

 

 

CORE VALUES:

Through literacy and life edutainment, we seek to nurture the natural tendencies of children to connect with all aspects of life through the power of joy, wonder and discovery as well as encourage them to always embrace a multi-ethnic worldview with excitement and curiosity. It is our hope that in doing so, as children become the leaders of tomorrow, they will have a personal stake in preserving and protecting the common threads of humanity that unite us all.

 

We are delighted at the opportunity to serve. See you soon!!! – Phoenix Hawkins
