Publisher, Tiny Owl Delaram Ghanimifard, co-founder of Tiny Owl, was born in Iran and moved to the UK in 2010 with her husband Karim and their two sons to work on her PhD in sociology; however, in 2012 she ended up starting a children's book publishing company. Her 9 year-old son was learning English and needed books that he could relate to, but she couldn't find many diverse, inclusive books. It was this need for diverse books that inspired her to start publishing books that represented their children and connected them culturally to their school friends so she and her husband started Tiny Owl. Their first books came out in 2015 and were translations from Persian. As Tiny Owl grew they embraced an increasingly more global approach; they now publishes inspiring books that celebrate diverse, inclusive stories for all children.
