How and why we select a work
Your manuscripts are received by our Editors, who reorganize and forward them to the Reading Department. They will then be studied and evaluated before being cataloged within one of our collections if they are thought to be in line with our editorial style.
Our innovative editorial protocol allows us to quickly evaluate the large number of manuscripts and illustrated works that we receive weekly, also giving space to new authors who, despite having very valid projects, find it very difficult to “open the doors of the publishing world”.
Our publishing protocol gives us the opportunity to deal with the large number of manuscripts or illustrated works that we receive every week, giving the opportunity to publish to new authors, who find it very difficult to “open the doors of the publishing world”, even if they have very good projects.Marta Montes (CEO of BABIDI-BÚ)
How to publish your children’s book?
One of the characteristics of this protocol is the commitment of the publisher to the commercialisation and maximum dissemination of the published works, and the need to involve the author in this process in different actions (presentations, talks, workshops, direct actions with schools, etc).How to publish your children’s book?
What is the best publisher for children’s books?
BABIDI-BÚ is one of the best publishing houses for children, specializing in the publication of hardcover albums and in the treatment of implicit values in the works.
Our catalog consists of 19 collections that promote reading while having fun. But that is not all. Each of our books tries to convey human values, to help our young readers to become great people. For this reason, our motto is: “from little readers to great people“.
Another of the most relevant reasons that places us among the best children’s publishers, among others, is the variety of our collections, which focus on themes that are fundamental for us such as love for nature, respect for the environment , the diversity and inclusion of all people, to spur even the coldest emotional intelligence and train our little ones to understand the world of love.
We are also one of the most committed publishers in the publication of bilingual works, offering texts in two versions (English / Spanish, Italian / English…)
All this intrinsic value, together with our robust international distribution network, has allowed BABIDI-BÚ to establish itself over the years as one of the most valid entrepreneurial realities in the publishing sector. We have already realized the dreams of several authors, sharing with them a great goal: “to transmit and transform”.
Now our goal is to continue to grow, to guarantee the best editorial service to the authors who will arrive in the years to come, while remaining within everyone’s reach.Send us your manuscript
