Hi Maritza! How fun to write a book with your grandson! We don't publish books, but if you're looking to be traditionally published, you can check out the Book Market Guide in our bookstore for publishers accepting submissions: https://www.instituteforwriters.com/a-book-markets-for-childrens-writers-2020-just-arrived.html You can also check out self-publishing options on Amazon or Book Baby.

I have written and my grandson has illustrated a book. I would love to send it for review. We have two others that we are working on and would love to see them published.
