    Kids Can Press

    Hey, I found this small press that publishes books for children and young adults. I looked at their books and googled them. They don't seem to be widely read, but they do seem legitimate. Anyone know anything about Kids Can Press?

    The website: http://www.kidscanpress.com

    They are a Canadian children's publisher. I've seen a couple of their books on store and library bookshelves. I think you have a better chance with them if you're Canadian. At least, they only take unsolicited manuscripts from Canadians, but people from other countries can probably send query letters. I have a form rejection from them for a picture book manuscript I sent.
    You again? Uh...yeah.

    Kids Can is a very well-respected education market publisher. They do a great job with their books.

    We do not currently accept unsolicited manuscripts from children or teenagers, or from authors outside of Canada.

    Well, that leaves me out on both counts!

    Maybe, but that doesn't mean you can't query them. If you've looked at their list, and think your book would fit in, go for it. You don't have anything to lose except the cost of a stamp.
