About Us

2DonnBooks was started as a small publishing company in 2004 by Francie Donnell.    2DonnBooks reflects her vision to produce quality books at an affordable price using 21st Century publishing techniques and marketing tools.  While the company’s first books were focused on young children, more recent endeavors expanded into other areas, retaining the theme of being written by or about those in the education professional.  Books also include multimedia and interactive formats, along with the traditional rich illustrations that children love.
