Birdcage Press

From the Publisher

I first began creating games as a way to make learning more fun for my three young children. We made them up together, pairing favorite card games with different periods of art and history. I wrote a book to go with each game and my children acted as my editors. They made sure every fact in each book was interesting and easy to understand for readers of all ages.

We began publishing our games in 2000 and quickly received numerous awards for excellence. They are now sold in the world's major museums, as well as in fine gift, book, and toy stores. This year, we are proud to offer a range of games and other products that bring history, art and nature alive for the whole family. We hope you'll enjoy them.

Birdcage Press has a new digital division!


At 5 Ravens our goal is to make exceptional iPad apps for learning.

Our first app is all about birds. Why birds? We love them! And did you know that bird-watching is the #1 pastime in America? It's bigger than baseball, football or any other recreational activity.

My Bird World features 24 North American birds, presented in a diverse collection of 4 different and delightful games. We have co-produced My Bird World with The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, a world leader in the study, appreciation, and conservation of birds.
