In 1971, Leah Curry-Rood and Larry Rood, guided by a respect for the work of teachers and parents of young children, started a company called Gryphon House, which began as a distributor of quality children’s books. In 1979, Gryphon House expanded the business to include the distribution of teacher resource books.
Gryphon House became a publisher in 1981. One of the original books published in that first year, Bubbles, Rainbows, and Worms, is still in print.
We currently have a backlist of nearly 200 titles, including beloved authors like Pam Schiller, MaryAnn F. Kohl, and Jackie Silberg. We are proud to be growing our list year after year. Each year, Gryphon House offers several new titles to help educators, caregivers, and parents give children the confidence to develop the skills necessary to navigate through life successfully.
The face of Gryphon House has changed over the years, but we still strive to publish and distribute the highest-quality books for educators, parents, and caregivers.
