Our day to day at the office

We are, above all, a happy team! But we are also a children and youth publisher, imagined from its conception to accompany the Touch Generation, commonly known as “T Kids“, those little ones born from the year 2010 that are growing up at great speed and who carry the banner of the generation that presents one of the greatest educational challenges in history.

Our main objective is to encourage reading with works in which human values prevail, while remaining fun and entertaining, full of adventure and mystery. In addition to encouraging reading, another of our goals is to encourage creativity in children and young people as a means of expression, helping them to develop their imagination and promoting the development of their Emotional Intelligence.

How do we fulfill your dream?

Writing children’s and youth stories involves learning to think and feel like a child. But it also implies the task of instilling positive values for our society. At BABIDI-BÚ we know the importance of this and we try to ensure that all our books promote equality and respect through reading. How do we do it?

Marta Montes

Founder CEO

Sóc la Marta… Al llarg dels anys, he format un equip de professionals excepcionals. Estic immensament orgullosa d’aquest equip i sóc conscient del sobresortint treball editorial que realitzen. Això m’ha permès dedicar-me a ‘sobrevoar’, vigilant que totes les peces encaixin, ocupant-me d’estar a la vanguarda en tendències editorials i tecnologies innovadores, una dedicació que marca la diferència. El meu compromís és assegurar-me que la teva obra no només sigui ben rebuda sinó que destaci en un mercat editorial en constant evolució. Això implica una exploració constant de noves estratègies per a la distribució de llibres. El meu objectiu és identificar i aprofitar oportunitats úniques per a cada autor. Però, sobretot, em llevo cada dia amb la finalitat que el meu equip treballi feliçment perquè la nostra energia positiva arribi a tots els autors i lectors.

Sade

Intern

Hello, I’m Sade, Folasade, the new intern. In Yoruba, my name means “honor bestows a crown,” and I am indeed a Nigerian princess. I enjoy strolling through the publishing house, greeting everyone with my wagging tail, and supervising the hard covers of the books (perfect for nibbling, don’t tell Marta!). I’m also an expert at finding the best spots to read and nap. I have a keen sense for exciting stories and aspire to inspire curiosity and adventure in young readers.
