In 2015, my husband and I had our first baby. We ventured together into a world of diapers, early bedtimes and children’s books. As it is for many families, it was also a time that we discussed and thought a lot about the families we grew up in. We realized there were so many of our family stories we wanted our kids to know from a very young age.
As we dug into it, we learned that hearing family stories has shown positive outcomes in the development of children. They have a stronger sense of identity, more confidence and are able to better deal with the ups and downs of life.
The idea for Cuento Books was born. We want to make it as easy as possible for families to share their stories with their little ones through original, beautifully illustrated children’s books. At the end of the day, our goal is to strengthen your family by helping you pass on triumphs, challenges and what makes your family unique.
Why the name 'Cuento Books'?
'Cuento' is the Spanish word for 'story'. It could also mean 'folklore' which is defined as the traditional beliefs, customs, and stories of a community, passed through the generations.
