They come from diverse places and backgrounds — from teachers to lawyers, singers to librarians, hailing from Maine to Ecuador, from Seattle to Brazil.
Though scattered about the country and about the world, they share something in common: They are blessed storytellers with the ability to create stories and characters that make readers and listeners laugh, cry, smile, sigh, think, ponder and learn life's lessons.
Together, they form August House's family of children's storytellers, authors, and artists.
The talented storytellers with whom we collaborate deliver a body of content that parents, teachers, and children can depend upon to share stories that implicitly deliver core values and engender cross-cultural understanding.
This assembly of talent represents the very best in children's literature. Their work comes complete with resources to inspire, engage, and motivate a love of learning, exploration, and understanding.
The August House family of children's storytellers, authors, and artists is the most award-winning group of its kind assembled under one roof. They have collectively won more than 300 awards, reflecting the authenticity and quality of their combined work.
Prestigious awards won include Parents' Choice Foundation Awards, Emmys, Grammys, American Library Association Awards, Aesop Awards, Storytelling World Awards, New York Public Library Best Books Awards, and a host of other citations.
The storytellers, authors and illustrators of August House are the company's heart and soul.
Each week they travel the country — storytellers, authors, and artists — bringing their award-winning stories and memorable characters to life in cities and towns, warming the hearts of thousands of listeners.
