It's All in Early Education

Trusted by Parents & Teachers

Cubbie Blue Publishing, Inc., was created in 2003. Three inch tall, Antarctica native, Cubbie Blue, is the main character in the early-reader, children’s book series, 'Cubbie Blue & his Dog Dot', written by Randa Handler, and was the inspiration for the name of her publishing company. Among their titles, the publisher released a unique series of educational children’s books, the Claire Adventures series, written and illustrated by Heather French Henry, Miss America 2000, a veterans’ rights advocate. These books follow precautious 'Claire' as she discovers the meaning of the Fourth of July ('Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Jellybeans'), Flag Day ('What Freedom Means to Me'), and Veteran’s Day ('Pepper’s Purple Heart'). She also figured out how planes work in Flying Away, and how to make a sick friend feel better in, 'Claire’s Magic Shoes'. Even though these books are out of print, they are still being used as lesson-plans by many elementary school teachers, and they remain recommended reading on many educational, state and governmental sites. In 2006, Cubbie Blue Publishing created the imprint Ravencrest Publishing.
