$3 of every sale goes to Institute for Better Education Foundation! Learn More

Magic Portal Books is dedicated to enriching and championing children’s education. We believe that immersive and interactive experiences garner curiosity, which leads to further exploration. We believe in providing children with the tools for safely exploring the world around them. We believe children learn best when they are interested, presented the information in a way that is consistent with their learning style(s) and entertained.


Magic Portal Books are much more than books. They are designed to be a multi-media, ed-tech platform for self-paced learning and guidance. The goal of the series is to provide a basis for developing critical thinking skills, questioning through observation, using creative problem-solving techniques, identifying and challenging assumptions and designing experiments to test theories.


The digital experiences provide a wide variety of topics and discussion questions to develop and practice critical thinking skills. Topics include: history, science, engineering, technology, biology, geology, geography, culture, language and the arts. We value age-appropriate education and strive to balance facts with data for analysis, observation and questioning.


The goal of Magic Portal Books is to fund non-profit education foundations. We currently partner with IBE Foundation (, which provides educational resources to low-income families across Arizona.


Although we have started with locations in Arizona, we plan to expand across the globe, under the oceans, inside the human body and outside the solar system. We plan to take children on a journey through space and time and allow them to explore and learn on their own.


If you are passionate about developing safe, self-guided, fun, multimedia learning tools, then we are looking for you. We need writers, teachers, artists, videographers, photographers, animators, modelers, education specialists, curriculum developers, researchers and anyone else who wants to give back to kids through building, designing or promoting educational platforms.


Please contact us if you are interested in working with us to enrich education for all children.

We love to learn while having fun.

"Sedona's Quest is an amazing children's book that not only entertains but also educates. My kids loved the story of the quail trying to reach Slide Rock and the VR experiences made learning about Sedona's history and landscape so much fun. Highly recommend!"

"As a mother, I am always looking for educational and fun books for my children. Sherman, A Tucson Tortoise is the perfect combination of both. My kids loved following Sherman's journey and learning about the different animals in the desert. The VR experiences were a great addition and made the learning experience even more exciting. Highly recommend!"

"Sherman, A Tucson Tortoise is a must-read for children! My daughter was captivated by the story and loved the illustrations. The best part was the VR experiences that allowed her to explore the desert and learn about the different animals in a unique way. I appreciate the educational aspect of the book, while still being entertaining for kids."
