Xist Publishing: Inspiring Discovery & Delight
In every book we publish, we’re looking for titles that capture the essence of childhood. Xist Publishing exists to help kids celebrate the little things that make our big world magnificent. We are committed to bring discovery and delight through stories and informative texts that help children develop a lifetime love of reading, no matter what form it takes.
In 2011, Founder Calee M. Lee's 4-year-old daughter wanted to hear a story, read as ebook on Lee's new Kindle. When they tried to download a few illustrated titles, they discovered that the ebooks simply weren’t readable. In an effort to encourage her child to love reading, no matter the format, Lee promised to make an ebook with pictures. Nine years and more than a thousand titles later, the child and the company aren’t so little anymore.
Xist Publishing books are distributed to the trade through Ingram. School and library customers can purchase through Baker & Taylor, Follett, Mackin, Classroom Library Company, Bookpal and more.
