What’s Your NativeAdVantage:

What do you do best?

Publishing & educating is what we do best. We are a mother-daughter-owned, kind-hearted independent publisher dedicated to creating inspiring, beautiful books to be treasured and loved by children, young adults, and the young at heart. We consider our books to be works of art, finding inspiration in time-honored traditions while re-imagining publishing in the technological age for young people.

We view the publication of a book as an important point of departure for further meaningful work that has the capacity to transform lives. 


How will you become the best?

We endeavor to become the best version of ourselves by continuing to learn, grow, innovate and inspire others through our publications, philanthropy and role as educators. 

What are your aspirations?

Personal: To continue to travel and explore, from other countries to own our backyards. To further develop our creative capacities.

Business: To publish more beautiful & inspiring books and to create meaningful connections with our readers. To find new ways to innovate and collaborate with others.

What fascinates you? 

Virginia: Pretty much everything about this mysterious, wondrous life is fascinating--
Nature; human nature; the creative process; the unending capacity to learn, grow and transform; the universe; each new day

Julie: the positive power of the human-animal connection, the seemingly random yet calculated connectedness of our life experiences, and animated motion pictures!

“You don’t have to be big to make a BIG difference in the world.” - Norbert, 3-lb. therapy dog


Is Norbert the dog a “people?”


The state of Maine is a favorite annual family vacation spot where we enjoy time for rejuvenation and reconnecting nature with our inner spirits. But in general, we are happy wherever we are.


Non-toxic art supplies, DSLR camera and in general, products that are hand-crafted


We are passionate about living conscious lives full of wonder, creativity and imagination, accompanied by a pure intent to inspire others and effect positive change. Other passions include: making people smile, reading, traveling, meditating and story-telling.
