Rainforest-Safe Book Database Earlier this year, Rainforest Action Network found out that some kids’ books are being printed on paper that comes from rainforest destruction – even kids’ books about rainforests! They did some research and started a database of books that are “rainforest-safe.” In other words, it’s a database of books that are printed on post-consumer recycled, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified or recycled paper, and aren’t contributing to the loss of Indonesia’s or other endangered rainforests. We made the list! Nereena, the Fairy Queen of Halloween is printed on Sterling Matte 80# 10% PCW, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, and we are proud of it.Browse the database (Search for Nereena, the Fairy Queen of Halloween)

The Peru Project is a mother-daughter project which aims to promote literacy, education, and the arts for the children and their families of rural Huaripampa, in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The project raises money to build a community center, which will house a library, an art studio, and a music room. By building this community center, we hope to inspire others to dream,whether it be those in Huaripampa or those closer to home.
