There are numerous children's book publishers. Only one established publisher, however, sells books exclusively written by children. Other publishers, though, will consider a manuscript written by a child and, if they find it interesting and appealing, will publish it. There are also print on demand, or POD, publishers who will publish any book you like, including a book written by a child, but you will also incur all the costs of printing.

KidPub Press

KidPub Press is the only publisher that exclusively publishes books written by children. In addition to distributing the books through its online bookstore, KidPub Press sells children's books through such retailers as Amazon and Target. The titles published by KidPub Press include "Kiara" by Megan Scoma, "Balls Of String: A Potpourri Of Stories For Kids" by Meghna Sathiapalan and "Stories From A Fifth Grader" by Nicole Parker.


HarperCollins is one of the biggest and most well-known publishers in the world. Its children's books devision publishes a wide range of books intended for kids of all ages. Even though publishing with HarperCollins is difficult due to the high standard of writing required, if your kid will manage to get his book published with this company, he is almost guaranteed a career as a writer.
