About BRAVE

BRAVE Books is a Christian publishing company that makes books for kids that reinforce biblically-based, foundational values.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be the brand parents trust with their children's imaginations by creating a world, characters, and stories that not only enthrall them but build their character while doing so.

BRAVE's Beginnings

Before founding BRAVE Books, Dr. Trent Talbot was a practicing ophthalmologist. He became a new dad when his daughter was born in 2020.

As he began to look for children's content for his daughter, he was shocked by the sheer amount of inappropriate entertainment on the market. He saw the need for a brand that parents like him could trust with their children's imaginations. This idea led him to found BRAVE Books in 2021.

Since then, BRAVE has launched a successful children's book series, collaborated with authors like Kirk Cameron, Missy Robertson, and Kevin Sorbo, sparked the national See You at the Library movement, become a trusted resource for over 175,000 families, and not is creating a wholesome new children's TV show starring Kirk Cameron.

A Company for Families by Families

BRAVE is not just a company for families. We're a company of families. Our Head of Creative, a former teacher, edits BRAVE's stories with his own five children in mind. And our in-house illustrator works not only for BRAVE but for his harshest critics: his own three daughters. That's how we create the kinds of stories that families want to read together.

A BRAVE Family Testimonial

"Our family signed up for the Freedom Island Book Club, after we started homeschooling our boys. I realized as a mother, my children weren't practicing the morals and values that we hold in our home anymore. They spent so much time away from home, we lost the connection we all had together as a family, and for the Lord. When we signed up, my husband and I made it our mission to make Brave Books, our monthly family adventure. Every time a book comes in, we make our home a special area that we can relax and play in, or we go somewhere and read there. The kids enjoy dedicating an entire day to family time, learning from the Brave Books, and taking the time to grow closer to God as we pray and spend quality family time together."
