We’re thrilled to usher in 2021 for many reasons, and one of them is definitely Baby Ventures™ turning the big five this spring! Since launching our indie board book company in 2016, we have met and collaborated with incredible people and entities – from community-minded indie bookstore owners to educators infusing diversity into their classrooms, and nonprofits working tirelessly to provide access to quality books for all children. And most of all, our amazing customers! We LOVE meeting you at story times, book fairs and art festivals—and nothing makes us happier than hearing that your little ones love our books. That gives us true joy and singular inspiration.
While some of you have followed us from the beginning (thank you!), for anyone new to us, we wanted to take this time to (re)introduce ourselves, share what inspires us, and highlight how we work to accomplish our mission to celebrate diversity and expand growing minds through reading. Read on to learn about our journey, and get a sneak peek of what is coming in 2021 and beyond!

*While supplies last.
As a children’s board book company, we at Baby Ventures know firsthand of the pure joy (and lifelong benefits) of raising little bookworms. We believe that early learning is the cornerstone of a thriving childhood and that it’s never too early to start reading to young children to expand their worldview. So we were thrilled to discover Bookroo, a fellow mom-inspired company that helps parents build their children’s book collections in an exciting way through monthly book deliveries. Offering both board book and picture book packages, Bookroo helps parents discover new books and authors beyond the classics by carefully selecting “hidden gems” that are not easily found in stores or online.
We recently had the pleasure of speaking with the co-founders of Bookroo—three sisters-in-law brought together by their husbands and love of reading—about the benefits of early learning, how parents can foster a love of reading in their own children and more.
