Writing and Illustrating

 

Tilbury House PublisherPosted: 18 Feb 2010 09:04 PM PST

Sometimes in our quest to get publish we forget about the smaller publishers out their accepting unsolicited manuscripts and unagented manuscripts.  Tilbury House is one of those small publishers.  You can go to: http://tilburyhouse.com/books-childrens.htm to look at the books they have published.  It looks like they do picture books, biographies, and young middle grade stories with a strong educational focus.  See below:

Children’s Books

They are primarily interested in children’s picture books (for ages 7-12) that:

  • Deal with issues of cultural diversity (global), nature, or the environment (they don’t publish “general” children’s books about animals, fables, or fantasy).
  • Appeal to children and parents and offer enough learning content so thatyour book will also appeal to the educational market.
  • Will sell to the national (not just regional) market
  • Offer possibilities for developing a separate teacher’s guide (written by an educator) that will expand the focus of the book, offer additional information, and suggest learning activities and approaches.
  • Be sure to check out Kathy Temean’s site and finish reading her post on Tilbury Press.

    My Favorites:

    I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

    I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

    I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
