Manatees are mellow mammals, but get excited about their favorite books.  What warms our blood even more at blue manatee is seeing a child find theirs.  For from each bedtime-busting story and impassioned page-turner (" more page, one more chapter, please..."), grows a life-long love of reading.

Baby Unplugged

Curriculum? Imagination. Batteries? Nope. Learning? Lots! A blue manatee press series, Baby Unplugged is a celebration of timeless childhood experiences and icons – blankets, yards, pets, books, blocks – each a catalyst for togetherness, rooted in how developing brains work. They are reassurance that “old-school” is not only OK, but the best school there is.
