At blue manatee press, we focus on baby literacy, and baby health and development. Through our books we encourage creative play and education for both children and adults through our various original board books and picture books!

There are so many ways to connect with our books that go beyond reading them again and again! Below we share with you a few ways to help incorporate creative play based on our books, plus a few ideas on how to personalize your life with some of your favorite blue manatee press characters!
