The genres represented in its growing collection include educational titles, nonfiction, picture books, juvenile fiction, memoirs, Westerns, novels, professional "how-to's" and more.

Having assembled a team of dozens of skilled industry professionals, Linda F. Radke, founder and president of Five Star Publications, Inc. and Little Five Star, is committed to helping both established and aspiring authors of all ages continually reach new heights. Along with providing book production and marketing services, the Five Star team also assists organizations with website redesign, logo design and corporate or product branding.

Unique to Little Five Star authors is the Five Star School Bookings program. Five Star acts as a booking agent by actively seeking and coordinating school and library presentation opportunities for Little Five Star authors, handling billing and collections, and giving them a free listing at SchoolBookings.com. Five Star can also assist authors in creating PowerPoint presentations, school/library flyers and order forms for school and library visits.

A division of Five Star Publications, Inc., Little Five Star is a proud publisher of great books for growing minds and excels in educating and entertaining young thinkers. Little Five Star helps children to make better choices and to accept themselves and others.

As a publisher of children's and young adult books, I am privileged to receive feedback on the impact reading good books has on young minds, and have discovered it means many different things to each of them. To some, reading is the ultimate escape. It's their ticket to a new relationship, an awesome adventure or even a journey through space and time. To others, it offers an infusion of self-esteem, confidence, hope or a chance to follow a dream. Reading generates laughter, tears, excitement, empathy, learning and much more.
