Submission Guidelines

If you are an author or illustrator of a children’s book, please follow the submission guidelines below.


Guidelines for Usborne Books

All Usborne books distributed by EDC Publishing are written, designed and illustrated in England by Usborne Publishing. We do not have any influence or input on the Usborne books which Usborne Publishing produces.



Guidelines for Kane Miller Books

Kane Miller Book Publishers was acquired by Educational Development Corporation in 2009 – they are the “more” in Usborne Books & More.

BOOK TOPICS that Kane Miller is currently looking for.

Kane Miller Book Publishers specializes in award-winning children’s books from around the world. Their goal is to bring the children of the world closer to each other, sharing stories and ideas, while exploring cultural differences and similarities.

The hope is that a child reading a Kane Miller book will “see parallels between his own life and what might be the unfamiliar setting and characters of the story. And that by seeing how a character who is somehow or in some way dissimilar – an “outsider”- finds a way to fit comfortably into a culture or community or situation while maintaining a healthy sense of self and self-dignity, he/she might be empowered to do the same.”

Although Kane Miller continues to look for books from other countries, they are now also seeking works that convey cultures and communities within the US.

Thank you again for your interest in EDC Publishing and Usborne books and Kane Miller books. We at wish you every success in your writing endeavors.
