Stories to start a conversation.

Jelani Memory started A Kids Co. in 2019 with a single, self-published book—A Kids Book About Racism. What began as a small, personal side project has quickly grown into a full-fledged kids' media company with over 80 book titles, a podcast network of a dozen shows, and a streaming video platform and app—all carefully designed to speak up to kids, introduce them to big ideas and important topics, and empower families to engage in thoughtful conversations together.

Defining the next generation of kids' media.

One of the unique parts of A Kids Co. is the speed and efficiency at which new products were conceived of, developed, and published. Our small team launched over 50 new products within a year, spanning books, video, and audio-based channels.

We worked with partners like The Dodo, Seed, Judy, Nugget, Billie, and with legends like LeVar Burton, Billie Jean King, Ziggy Marley, Joy Cho, and Taboo.

And, we won awards from Apple, Fast Company, and Common Sense Media. Pretty dang cool.
