Children’s Books That Are Good. Pure. Fun.

SBA Books

Our Story

In 2009, Sheila Booth-Alberstadt founded SBA Books, an Indie Publishing Company in Daphne, Alabama. She originally wanted a platform to publish works that help children tackle a variety of topics from health and hygiene, with a comical twist, to dealing with the struggles children often face in everyday life. Over the years, SBA Books has provided Booth-Alberstadt, and her team, endless opportunities ranging from ghostwriting, creating the animated series, Maggie McNair’s World, and helping other authors through the process of creating a beautiful children’s books of their own.

With today’s social climate, Booth-Alberstadt recognizes a need for positive role models influencing our young children. “We need books that are good, wholesome, and pure. There’s already enough darkness in our world and it’s time we shine light into the hearts of children. We pray to team up with other authors and illustrators who share the same values and passion. It's a beautiful ministry to see a dream come to life, especially when God gets the glory,” said Booth-Alberstadt.

SBA Books is currently looking to publish material that enlightens kids about important things such as good morals and character, proper etiquette, and simple truths about God, all the while keeping it fun and visually engaging.

We Teach More Than Just ABC's

Every published work we have at SBA Books aims to teach children the basics of life. When your kids read our books, they pick up on traits and values that will help them as they grow. From the fundamentals of good health and hygiene to establishing good morals and appropriate conduct, we discuss each lesson in a fun way.

Schedule a School Visit

When an author, or illustrator, visits a school, it often becomes the bridge that helps children connect with books. It helps children view reading, writing, and art as being fun, and cool, and gives them a window into the creative process. For many children it is the moment that a dream is awakened. 

"There's something so beautiful about looking into the eyes of young children (who have come to realize the person behind the words and pictures is real) and knowing that you have a short window to positively influence and impact their life...forever."~ Sheila Booth-Alberstadt- Author

Kora Greenwood-Author of Gifted

"I am so glad I chose SBA Books to publish my book.  I had never written a children's story and had no idea how to go about it, but Sheila took my ideas and produced a work of art that I am extremely proud of. She did everything she said she would do, and then some. I put everything in Sheila's hands and she did an amazing job. My book has turned out to be beyond incredible! Everything that I envisioned, and more, was brought to life, thanks to Sheila and her team."

Without Sheila and her team, my book would not be a reality today! I never imagined that the publishing process would be such a difficult maze to navigate. Sheila and her team spent countless hours guiding me every step of the way from editing, to selecting an illustrator, to the actual printing of the book. Her vast knowledge was indispensable to me!
