Welcome to North Country Publishing and our About Us page. We are Chris and Gina Harman and we live in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Our company is committed to publishing family friendly children's books with morals and values. As parents, we know the challenges that children go through when growing up, moving, finding new friends, and dealing with hurdles in life. We have two children, who are now all grown up — but throughout their young years, they were a huge inspiration for us to have fun around the pond and look for creatures.
Currently, we have two books available: "Pond Friends" & "Pond Friends, The Greatest Alphabet Adventure". We have approximately five more books to publish by 2024. We hope that you enjoy our books and make sure to visit our primary website that delves into all of the branches of work that we do: fine art, web design, jewelry, travel, our YouTube channel, and what inspires us!
