Cannot recommend Schoolyard Stories Publishing enough. They were everything I had hoped for in dealing with a publishing company. Thank you.

Schoolyard Stories Publishing provided a seamless and highly professional service for our school cookbook. Sophia was supportive, responsive and insightful from start to finish, and made a large task stress-free and enjoyable. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Schoolyard Stories is a great fundraising opportunity and the childrens very own published story is a wonderful keepsake. On the day of our storybook launch, kids in the schoolyard were all huddled together reading their stories. How exciting to see kids huddled around a book rather than an electronic gadget.

The quality of the books was great and I was guided through the publishing process every step of the way. Easy to do and profitable.
