Unsolicited Children’s Book Submissions


I love learning about open doors for us as writers.

And I’m excited to learn about two small publishing houses that publish children’s books.

Isn’t that great news? To discover new places that are publishing books for kids?

But even better news is that both of these houses…yes, I repeat BOTH…are open to unsolicited manuscript submissions!

So if you have a children’s book that you want to submit, check out these amazing presses. Read their current and past book catalogues. Follow them on social media. And READ. THEIR. BOOKS.

Then submit to them if you think your manuscript would be a good fit at their house.

Drum roll please.

Little Lamb Books

Ripple Grove Press

Happy submitting!


  1. Thanks so much for this info! I do have a manuscript to send to one of them.

    • Yay, Pam! Praying God will give you an open door.

  2. Thank you for sharing these open door opportunities, Nancy. You do so much for the kid lit community. It’s submission time!

    • So glad that you’re inspired to submit, Suzy!
