Green Bean Books

About Us

Michael Leventhal, Publisher


Green Bean Books is an independent family-owned publisher which aims to publish the most beautiful and thoughtful books for children. 

I am proud to publish brand new books with original, innovative artwork and we also select books to translate from other languages and publish in English. As well as publishing works that have never been available before, I am reissuing classic works by Isaac Bashevis Singer and I. L. Peretz with new artwork.

All Green Bean Books have meaningful Jewish content. You can see the full list here

We try our best to present the best books possible and hope you enjoy reading them.

Feel free to email me at or come and find me at the London, Frankfurt or Bologna Book Fairs.
