Tadpole Press... 4 Kids is a  publishing imprint of Smooth Sailing Press featuring children's books. Tadpole Press produces books in both paperback and hardcover in full color or illustrated in black and white for the older reader.

 

It is the mission of Tadpole Press to publish only titles that inspire the imagination of the young reader, to develop character and offer a respite from the challenging world that they face every day. It is our hope that one of our titles, shared during the day, will inspire and develop creative and imaginative thoughts and actions, and if it is the last thing that the child thinks about before going to sleep at night that it will bring peace and comfort.
