Who We Are


Former Sesame Street producer Carl Teitelbaum and his late sister, veteran Kindergarten teacher Rona Roth started developing One More Story in 1999. The site launched in 2005. Original music and sound effects for each book are produced by former Sesame Street Music Director, Robby Merkin. The One More Story team selects and produces books for our Library with the goal of offering a digital and interactive point of entry for young children to experience literature before they can read on their own.


Mission Statement


Our guiding philosophy is to offer our subscribers easy access to the highest quality in children’s literature presented in a most entertaining, provocative and creative way. Our goal is to foster in children a love of language and literature at the earliest age possible and to help create a generation of life-long readers.
