We love getting lost in a great story, we are moved by the possibilities of the latest technology, and we are inspired by beautiful art. Polk Street Press was founded in 2011 to bring together these loves and create innovative digital experiences for kids. Libby Roin started Polk Street when she realized that tablet computers are truly revolutionizing children’s books, allowing kids to interact with stories in a completely new way. Inspired by a lifelong love of reading, she brought together a team of talented artists, designers, and developers dedicated to sharing their passion for stories.
At Polk Street Press, we believe that when you bring together engaging stories, beautiful artwork, and build upon the intuitive nature of touch – stories can come to life in the hands of a child. The apps from Polk Street Press aren’t just digital spaces for children to learn and play – they incorporate wonderful storytelling with colorful pictures that seem to pop right off the screen and into your child’s imagination. Our hope is to bring families together while sharing our stories, and inspire a love of reading and art in this generation of children.
