Meet owner Teresa Sakurada

Teresa Sakurada (PC Justin Redona)In 2004, after 20 years as a CPA, I started a small retail business, Manga Heart LLC.  I sold manga (graphic novels) to libraries.  Our 5th grade daughter gave me the idea.  She was passionate about manga.  She kept wanting to read more!  I felt manga was a great way to get students hooked on reading.  Through my manga business I was asked to represent the educational publishers I do today.  My business in now called StarrEd LLC.

Reading is the cornerstone for education.   Every child wants to read.   When you purchase from StarrEd LLC, you’ll get wonderful books that encourage reading.  Your books will be visually appealing and engaging.  Your students will be excited with our books that are also tied to Hawaii Common Core Standards.
