VeryTale Books is a children’s book publisher based in San Diego, California.
Our mission is to publish books that expand children’s minds and creativity through adventure, language, and exposure to other cultures.
Our first endeavor is an 80-book partnership with the respected publisher Rato Bangala Kitab (RBK) in Nepal. The aim of the VeryTale-RBK partnership is to put Nepali language books in the hands of the Nepali diaspora all over the world, and to ensure that children never lose touch with their Nepali language and culture!
If you’d like to stay in touch with VeryTale and find out when we publish new books, sign up for our mailing list today.
