Gentle Giraffe Press

About Us

For Over Twenty Years We Have Been Creating for Kids

We are Gentle Giraffe Press, an educational publisher and creative content firm. Our mission is to give children fun foundations and build their confidence through a love of learning. We believe the more they know, the further they'll go.

Our president, Corkey Hay DeSimone was founding owner and designer of Corkey's Kids children's clothing company.  In 2003, after a very successful and exciting twelve years she sold Corkey's Kids to start her own creative content and educational publishing company, Gentle Giraffe Press. Since then she's written and illustrated over 24 books and created custom content in the form of websites, lesson plans, maps, apps, products and books for amazing groups like the Smithsonian, National Zoo, World Wildlife Fund, Sundance, Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, National Park Trust and many more. 

We know kids, families and teachers. Gentle Giraffe Press offers our clients a unique skill set that is not often found in the average creative firm.

It's our job to take an enormous amount of information and bring it to kids in a fun, deep and dynamic way. We want the children and teens to become the experts by offering them a multimedia approach to learning.

Are you a museum, zoo, education department, group, school system or non-profit? What do you want children to learn? How can we help you? Please contact us for more information or to schedule a complimentary needs assessment.
