For over thirty years, August House has curated a highly acclaimed, award-winning selection of picture books, story collections and resource books from the world’s great oral traditions.
Our stories are grounded in diversity and have been carefully selected from almost every region of the world. Along with our leveled books, we also offer award-winning audio programs from some of the most popular professional storytellers and differentiated lesson plans for Kindergarten through 2nd Grade that are correlated to the Common Core Standards for Reading.
By focusing on folktales, our stories have a unique advantage: they’ve already survived countless retellings over multiple generations. As a result, when we prepare a story for publication, it has already been vetted in live performances by some of the most demanding audiences in the world: young children.
Our books have been recognized by some of the most prestigious awards in publishing, including the following:
