From the Birdsong Books guidelines:

We are a small independent press actively seeking manuscripts and illustration styles that fit our narrowly defined niche. We are looking for writers and illustrators who do school programs or otherwise actively promote their books. We are only interested in nonfiction, natural science picture books or educational activity books about North American animals and habitats. Our books include several pages of back matter suitable for early elementary classrooms. Mailed submissions with SASE only. No email queries/submissions or phone calls, please. Cover letters should include a competitive analysis of the book idea and "sell" the author/illustrator.
