What We Do
Concierge Service: Let one of our master children's booksellers pick out a gift for your most loved ones.
Shipping: We can send your books and gifts to lands far, far away- let us do that! For a REALLY cool gift idea to share the love of reading and play, try blue manatee boxes - the best books in a box that rocks!
Gift Registry: For new parents, birthday parties, or holidays, you can start a wish list! For more information, click here!
Teacher, School, and Non-Profit Services: In-store book fairs and fundraisers, partnering for author and other events, educator/non-profit discount (20%!), and educator nights festooned with deals and goodies!
Event Hosting: We welcome proposals for educational, creative, and community meetings, including Mom/parent gatherings, craft demonstrations, expert lectures/discussions, in-store art fairs, and most anything nifty and kid-friendly that a mind can imagine. Our cozy Story Time Stage and festive Party Room are perfect for these.
Consignment: Local and self-published authors and makers of whimsy - if you'd like to see your work at blue manatee, this is how it's done!
