Ripple Grove Press is a family-owned children’s picture book publishing company started in 2013. “Our mission is to create picture books that come from life experiences, elegant imagination, and the deep down passion in our hearts. We want each Ripple Grove Press book to enlighten a child’s mind with fun and wonder. Ripple Grove Press searches for a powerful ‘timeless’ feel in each book we publish. Our stories will make you laugh or think or keep you guessing and dreaming. We hope our books find their way to the cozy spot on the floor and are the last ones read at bedtime.”


We are looking for picture driven stories for children aged 2-6. Please do not send early readers, middle grade, or YA manuscripts. No religious or holiday themed stories. We want something unique, sweet, funny, touching, offbeat, colorful, charming, different, creative.

(Why writers should put their e-mail online for all to see.)


“We accept submissions by mail and email. Please submit a cover letter including a summary of your story, the age range of story, a brief biography of yourself, contact information and, of course, your story. If you would like your materials returned, please include a SASE. Illustrators: When submitting artwork DO NOT send original art.
