St. Stylianos Books was founded by Lily Parascheva Rowe as a means to publish quality Orthodox Christian children's books.
The mission of St. Stylianos Books is to create small affordable story books for children, which each cover a limited topic. Over time these books would cover ever topic a parent might wish to teach their child about the Orthodox Faith.
The books are designed in a very colorful fashion by artist Roland J. Ford to attract and keep the attention of readers in a wide age range. They also incorporate iconography and phrases from hymns used in the services to help children realize which stories connect to which services or parts or different services.
These books are special because they pull from all of Church Tradition instead of just the bible as many childrens books do. In this way the narrative told is more Orthodox in nature.
It is our hope that we will have created a viable resource for parents, families, and parishes.
