About Gryphon House

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 distributer 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. We published two books that year. One of the original books, 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. In 2010, we will publish more than 15 new titles, and begin exciting partnerships with Between the Lions™ and Nemours
