Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a more loving and connected world?

Forest Crossing Friends is a children’s brand and book series about the adventures of forest critters making their way in the world. Our mission is to help 1 million kids better connect with their emotions through reading and adventure. The series was created to encourage empathy, bravery, and understanding as kids learn to navigate life. Designed for ages 4–7, but other kids love our merch and books too. We love young readers and appreciate those who support them (you!), so follow along and join our e-mail list if you’re interested in launches, markets, and reading events. Thank you for your interest and support.

You can purchase our books and merchandise online here, or at one of our retail locations or pop up events.

Author and Illustrator Casey Kelly Pérez is available for readings, signings, and events from time to time. If you're interested in booking an author visit to your school, camp, library, or event, please get in touch!

I highly recommend the new book Tippy’s Threads. Not only did our kids love the adorable characters but we all loved the important message it delivers young readers and what we always strive to teach our kids: BE KIND & BE YOURSELF!
