Publishers of Children’s Books (Fiction and Nonfiction)

The follow­ing is a list of children’s publish­ers to make it easier for you do your research.  This list doesn’t contain every publish­er that exists but will get you start­ed.  Some publish­ers may accept unsolicit­ed submis­sions.  Most (especial­ly the larger publish­ing houses) will require you have an agent.  But the point is to do your homework and become famil­iar with what’s out there.

With the excep­tion of Scholastic, many of these publish­ers also publish adult books.  In most cases, the links provid­ed go direct­ly to the children’s section or imprint of that publish­er.  You can explore both fiction and nonfic­tion at here and there are also links to school and library publish­ers for the author who would like to write nonfic­tion for that market.

I will update this list whenev­er I can and if you are inter­est­ed in receiv­ing updates to this page or the website in gener­al, sign up for the RSS feed.  Otherwise check back often.

Good luck to you!
