Ripple Grove Press


Ripple Grove Press is a family-owned children’s picture book publishing company.

We started Ripple Grove Press because we have a passion for well-written and beautifully-illustrated children’s picture books. Each story selected has been read dozens of times, then slept on, then walked away from, then talked about again and again. If the story has the same intrigue and the same interest that it had when we first read it, we move forward.

Our mission is to surround ourselves with great writers and talented illustrators to make the best and most beautiful book possible.

We want our books to be fun, imaginative, and timeless.

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 ages 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, colorful, playful, charming, different, creative. We’re looking for a story that captures a moment or a story so well told you don’t notice the underlying message or moral.
