About One Moore Book
One Moore Book publishes culturally sensitive and educational stories for children of countries with low literacy rates and underrepresented cultures. We provide literature for children whose narratives are largely missing from the children’s book publishing industry. The books also serve as a key to unknown people and places for all children who do not have access to cultures outside of their own.
