Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children’s books. We believe that every child deserves an excellent first book experience–beginning on the day they’re born. Reading is learning is our driving philosophy, and we strive to help parents understand why reading aloud from birth is so important. We offer a simple development-based guide to help them on their journey. Ginger Swift is a pen name for the creative team at Cottage Door Press. We use a name like this when we work together on a story. We choose a name that stands for “red bird,” which is our cheerful little mascot.
