All You Need To Know About KidZoo Books

KidZoo Books is an independent publisher based in Long Beach, California. Its small, but energetic, enthusiastic, expert team creates ebooks that engage, entertain and educate. You could say they’re putting the ”e” in ebook.

KidZoo Books was founded by musician/composer Greg Paxton. The publishing business was the last thing on Greg’s mind when, in 2007, he was hired to write music for a line of educational audio books for kids. He soon found himself in demand, writing and recording music and producing voice-over narration for independent authors and publishers producing audio books. In 2013, Greg got the crazy idea to start his own ebook publishing company, and KidZoo Books was born.

The goal of KidZoo Books will continue to be combining captivating storytelling, beautiful artwork, professional narration and imaginative music to create ebooks that, you guessed it, engage, entertain and educate.
