About Our Company Started over 38 years ago by two teachers, Carson-Dellosa Publishing is the leading provider of supplementary educational products for educators and parents around the globe. What does this mean? Well, step inside almost any classroom or home and you're sure to find any of our 4500+ learning products on bulletin boards and desks, in learning centers and reading nooks, and in backpacks and backseats.

We pride ourselves on more than just product quality and durability: Our teacher-developed materials are thoughtfully designed to meet children’s diverse learning needs including our Spectrum® workbooks for grade-specific subject, skill, and standardized test practice; our best-selling Summer Bridge Activities® series; and our Key Education line for children with special learning needs.

Although so much has changed over the past 38 years, our passion for providing teachers, parents, and children with the very best educational materials remains the same. From technology to teaching methods, curriculum to Common Core, we work hard to ensure our products meet today’s rigorous standards. And our customers are a huge part of this process; it is with their feedback that we develop the very best supplemental books, classroom decoratives, games, manipulatives, and digital products for prekindergarten through the eighth grade.

We are also proud to offer the best-selling Summer Bridge Activities® Spectrum®, Thinking Kids®, Brighter Child®, Learning Spot™ Lessons, Mark Twain Publishing, and Key Education.

And as part of our promise to make learning fun, we are happy to be licensed partners with Guinness World Records®, The World of Eric Carle®, and Ian Falconer's OLIVIA™.
