Nonprofit & Health Organizations

A major part of the blue manatee press mission is to create and distribute excellent children’s books that convey important, evidence-based health information for families of infants and young children in a readable, nurturing way.  

Led by a pediatrician with unique expertise in general and health literacy, we seek to redefine how such information is shared, especially in at-risk, culturally diverse populations. We welcome partnerships with public health, pediatric, and other nonprofit advocacy organizations, to help ensure that the story for all children is a happy and healthy one. Special discounts are available. We invite you to contact us to learn more!
