Publishers looking to inquire inclusive books

Klett Kinderbuch

Germany

Klett Kinderbuch is a small independent German publishing house for children’s books. We are publishing picture books, fiction and entertaining non-fiction titles for children from 2 to 12 years. We focus on topics from children’s realistic everyday life. We try to fill a gap by focusing on subjects, that didn’t find their way into children’s books yet or deal with taboos. Otherwise we are looking for new or original approaches on known subjects. We are looking for edgy, authentic, exciting, entertaining, clever, humours, challenging and thought-provoking books, that don’t shouldn’t be too obviously pedagogical and educational or obsessively politically correct at first glance.

Restless Books

USA

Yonder is an imprint from Restless Books devoted to bringing the wealth of great stories from around the globe to English-reading children, middle graders, and young adults. Books from other countries, cultures, viewpoints, and storytelling traditions can open up a universe of possibility, and the wider our view, the more powerfully books enrich and expand us. In an increasingly complex, globalized world, stories are potent vehicles of empathy. We believe it is essential to teach our kids to place themselves in the shoes of others beyond their communities, and instill in them a lifelong curiosity about the world and their place in it. Through publishing a diverse array of transporting stories, Yonder nurtures the next generation of savvy global citizens and lifelong readers.

 

Restless Books is an independent, nonprofit publisher devoted to championing essential voices from around the world whose stories speak to us across linguistic and cultural borders. We seek extraordinary international literature for adults and young readers that feeds our restlessness: our hunger for new perspectives, passion for other cultures and languages, and eagerness to explore beyond the confines of the familiar.
