Welcome to Magination Press!

We are Magination Press, the children’s book imprint of the American Psychological Association. We are thrilled you have found our blog! In this space, we will introduce you to our authors and artists and share with you the wonderful, meaningful, important work they do. We will showcase our books, of course. We will also make announcements, post news, brag about awards, brag about good reviews, brag some more about awards, and try to amuse you with the mundane as well as big thoughts.

That said, our topics are tough. Seriously tough. Magination Press works diligently to help children and teens learn to deal with the big and small challenges they may face. Our books are written with kindness and respect. Our books are designed to lead readers through an instructive process. Our books approach this process from a kid-centered, self-help/problem-solving place. We want to empower kids by giving them the tools they need to make a difference in their lives! We want our books to fulfill APA’s mission “… to advance the creation, communication and application of psychological knowledge to benefit society and improve people’s lives”  and we have grown beyond traditional bibliotherapy to reach a broad audience of parents, teachers, librarians, school counselors, and children and teens themselves.

Maybe that’s why you’re here!

So, please. Be our guest and poke around. We have so much to show you and even more to talk about.  With great respect and appreciation, welcome to Magination Press. –ke
