Confession: The reason I "discovered" Kane Miller books is because they were one of the first publishers to contact this blog and offer review copies.
The reason I love them: as it says on the home page, they offer "children's books from around the world." Which means, actually, just that -- children's books originally published in another country, translated, and then published here. The books are great on their own; but are also great because they reflect the cultures were they where originally published.
