Eifrig Publishing is the brainchild of American entrepreneur Penny Eifrig. The publishing company focuses on children's books by authors from the US and Germany, two cultures Eifrig knows a lot about.

For the last 22 years, she and her family have split their time between Pennsylvania and Berlin.

Currently, the mother of two is working on a line of bilingual children's books.
