Children's Book Publisher: Blue Apple Books

Blue Apple Books is an independent publisher of children’s books. The publishing company was founded in 2003 by Harriet Ziefert. Blue Apple Books specializes in picture books, board books and activity books, publishing books for babies to 12-year-olds.

According to the publisher, “Many of the Blue Apple books address an important theme in early childhood: separation, loss, and reunion; the emotional bond between parents and children; the development of empathy. A child’s intellectual development is also taken into account to cover concepts such as colors, counting, shapes, and letter sounds.”

Blue Apple Books are distributed by Ransdom House.
