About Curious Kids Press
Curious Kids Press (CKP) is an educational publishing company, focusing on high-interest, nonfiction books for young readers. The company was founded in 2016 by Jack L. Roberts, a former editor at Children’s Television Workshop (now Sesame Workshop) and Scholastic Inc., and award-winning photographer and designer William Michael Owens.
The company primarily publishes books designed to help young explorers expand and enhance their knowledge and awareness of countries and cultures around the world. "A Kid's Guide to..." series for ages 9-12 includes high-interest, informational texts on Ancient Egypt, Australia, China, Costa Rica, England, France, Kenya, Thailand, and South America. For younger readers (ages 5-8), a series titled "Let's Visit..." includes Costa Rica, Australia, China, and African Wildlife.
In addition, CKP publishes biographies and other informational texts for a diverse group of readers. For some of those readers, the CKP books will provide new reading challenges based on the vocabulary and sentence structure. For other readers, the CKP books will reinforce reading skills already mastered. While for still other readers, the text in CKP books will match the reader’s current skill level, regardless of age or grade level.
