For Educators

At Bess Press, we've placed particular emphasis on materials for grades K-12 by focusing on age and culturally appropriate materials that can enhance language acquisition, reading comprehension, and help extend literacy skills. The main function in producing these book titles is to provide multiple perspectives and viewpoints for students within island classrooms and to assist in fostering the education of independent global and local citizens.
