Exciting news! Anne Geddes is arriving on Put Me In The Story this Fall!
We're extremely excited to announce that we'll be celebrating a new arrival this year. We're bringing the iconic works of Anne Geddes, one of the world's most respected photographers, to Put Me In The Story this fall to allow parents to design and personalize versions of her work for the first time.
"I am so pleased and proud to have Sourcebooks as my American publisher," says Anne Geddes. "To be involved in a company with such a creative and dynamic publishing program, both in print and digital, and the highly professional team led by a person with drive, passion and heart in Dominique Raccah, is such a natural fit. Naturally, I care very deeply regarding the use and protection of my images, and I am totally confident that with the group at Sourcebooks I have found a company that shares my values."
"Anne is renowned for her iconic, beloved images of children that have touched millions of people, and we are incredibly excited to be working with her and the entire Geddes team," says Dominique Raccah, CEO and publisher of Sourcebooks. "In addition to the opportunity to partner on the creation of stunning new gift books, Anne Geddes will also anchor the baby edition of Put Me In The Story. The fact that parents will now be able to design Anne Geddes books specifically for their baby is remarkable."
Look for the more news on the baby edition of Put Me In The Story in the upcoming weeks and months!
We are thrilled to finally be able to announce the addition of The Berenstain Bears to Put Me in the Story! Most of us here at Sourcebooks grew up reading these beloved children's stories, so it is such an honor for us to be able to personalize these classic books for the first time ever and bring them into your homes for your children to fall in love with. Kids will now have the chance to join Brother Bear, Sister Bear, Papa Bear, and Mama Bear right in the story – what a gift for young readers!
Our Art Sevices Manager, Helen Nam received the orginial artwork for the Berenstain Bears…
…and we were in awe as we (carefully!) leafed through all the pages.

It is so incredible to think about children being able to experience the Berenstain Bears in a new way – with personalization. They'll star in classics like Home Sweet Tree, the first Berenstain Bears book to be personalized by Put Me in the Story, as well as The Berenstain Bears' Pet Show and The Berenstain Bears and the Talent Show.
Most of us have favorites – our editorial director, Todd Stocke, claims he can recite most of The Berenstains' B Book from memory (just ask him!).
