Our vision

Seshat Publishing House is named after Seshat, the Egyptian goddess of wisdom, knowledge and writing.

It was established with the aim of creating a shared reading experience for children from Israel and Arab countries by translating into Arabic and Hebrew selected books from different countries.

Our mission is to create, for the first time, a collection of children’s books for Arabic and Hebrew speaking children that builds a shared cultural reference for children and their parents.

Imagination and creativity in infants, toddlers and young children are a natural resource that must be utilized.

Exposing children to rich language and aesthetics from infancy can help them develop their linguistic and visual literacy.

We hope that you use our books as a tool to create a meaningful dialogue with your kids.

Elsewhere, at the same Time…
