On their website http://www.buto.biz/ Kelley & McGregor write that their mission is "to produce children’s picture books with a strong emphasis on Deaf culture and history". They also plan to publish at least two children’s picture books annually. The founders explain, "One unique feature of the small business is that its partners are Deaf and are well known in the field of Deafness".
