Where Young Minds Come to Create

We are a publishing platform for books by kids, for kids. At Sterna Paradisaea, we empower children around the world aged 5-10 to tell their stories and develop a unique voice.

We strive to encourage literacy, intercultural connectedness, and imagination. We see the value in saying “yes” to children’s ideas and ambitions, regardless of where they’re from or what their life experience has been.

Why Sterna Paradisaea

The Arctic Tern is a perfect picture of what delights us most about children. Sterna Paradisaea (latin for Arctic Tern), are energetic globetrotters, fearlessly flying from pole to pole as the seasons change. We hope to encourage this kind of eager curiosity and growth in everyone we reach with the art of storytelling.

Just like these whimsical birds, creative kids are unique, inquisitive, adventurous forces of nature. We can’t wait to help launch the stories that grow in the clever, playful minds of little authors.
