Hoopoe’s mission is to publish books that not only entertain children and young adults, but also help them to understand themselves and their world and to develop higher-level thinking skills. Our books include beautifully illustrated retellings of universal teaching-stories collected from Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Middle East and presented in English, Spanish, French and German as well as in the regions’ mother tongues and other languages; and an “All About Me” series providing useful, scientifically validated information for young people, to help them understand the challenges they face as they move into adolescence and become young adults.
Hoopoe Books is an imprint of the educational nonprofit Hoopoe Share Literacy Fund. The Hoopoe Share Literacy Fund (HSLF) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization (EIN 87-3362929).
We are greatly aided by volunteers and by donations.
