According to their submissions guidelines:
We will consider picture books, early readers, midgrade novels, novelties, and informational books for all ages. Although we are not searching for YA fiction in particular, we would consider projects that tied in with the subject areas in which we are publishing. We are mainly publishing single titles but are open to series ideas. Our parent company publishes many excellent books in the fields of ecology, independent living, farm living, wilderness living, recycling, and other green topics, and this will be a theme in our children's book line. We are also searching for books that have strong educational themes and that help inform children of the world in which they live. We are also interested in books with special needs themes, such as autism, ADHD, food allergies, and so forth. Website: http://www.skyponypress.com
Here is a link to submission guidelines for another religious (but less overtly so) publication, Pockets magazine. Pockets is inter-denominational, and their readers include children of many cultures and ethnic backgrounds.

Well, I was at Sea World and Aquatica with my eldest daughter. She loved it. I loved that they had potties every ten feet. And, at the end of the week, I completed my first ever triathlon. Lest you think I am actually some sort of athlete, you should know that several other competitors were wearing costumes, and some people were drinking beer. It was THAT kind of triathlon.
But I'm back now - so check in for more small press publishers! (and, you know, struggling writer stuff...)

Azro Press is primarily interested in picture books and illustrated easy reader books for young children. At the moment, we are focusing on books written and illustrated by residents of the Southwest. These books are not necessarily about the Southwest, but it helps. We only accept manuscripts that have already been illustrated (this last bit intrigues me... never seen that before!)
