Cali's Books Hooks Kids on Books

Founder image

Hi, I'm Cali! Cali's Books Founder

“I’ve loved books since childhood and wanted to transmit this enthusiasm to my children”

Cali is a mom of two young children who trained as an engineer and worked in investment banking and at Disney. Cali is French of Caribbean origin (Martinique to be precise!) and grew up in Paris. She now calls Los Angeles her home.
Her passion for books stems from early childhood in
Paris. “I’m fond of the musical board books I found in France, my home country", says Cali, founder. These have embedded sound buttons that babies and children push to hear songs and musical tunes. I wanted to offer the same pleasure to children in the English-speaking world. I’m also thrilled that Cali’s Books is something I can share with my children.

Our Story

Based in Los Angeles, Cali's Books is a publishing house dedicated to introducing young children to the joyous world of words and music. It started off as a one woman show in the garage of Cali's family home and has now grown to a team friends and family working remotely around the world! "We are a majority woman operated business and I am so proud of it!" This is what Cali's Books is all about: bringing families together through diversity and a shared love of language, music and culture. It is such a blessing to work with these powerful women!
