DUCK DUCK BOOKS
Duck Duck Books was founded in 2021 by Lavender Chen, a passionate reader as a child who hopes to turn her love for creating into something that can help engage more children in reading.
While interning as Community Reading Buddies Youth Mentor for Aspire Education in 2020, Lavender learned first-hand how to keep young readers engaged during the height of COVID-19 pandemic. As the Youth Mentor, she used online digital literacy tool to teach K-3rd grader how to read. With freshly acquired knowledge, she founded Duck Duck Books with a group of fellow eager high school students looking to put their creative skills to great use.
Duck Duck Books is a stress-free environment where creators can do what they do best, create!
As reading is fundamental to development in children, and having access to books helps encourage reading. Our mission is to write children’s books that teach valuable lessons and help boost self-confidence, providing free books to those who may not have access to them, and allow creators to do what they love, create! It is a win-win-win!
