Our names are an important part of our identity, they can carry personal, family, cultural, and historical meaning to our loved ones. Names became a part of our identity and who we are, that’s why we believe in the importance of putting the name and a personalized avatar of children in our books.

Playstories transform children into protagonists to develop self-identity and spark interest in reading. Technology is our ally to offer an experience as unique as each of our little readers. We are inspired by children’s imagination and freedom while creating books where anything is possible.
