Cottage Door Press Expands List
Like many a bookish mom, the first baby items I bought for my little one were books. Picture books, board books , classics, contemporary, just about everything. As my baby grows, she plays with her soft books in different ways. When she was first beginning to touch and feel the things around her, she loved the crinkly pages. What a surprise!

Three years after it was founded by retired Publications International president Richard Maddrell , Cottage Door Press is expanding at such a rapid pace that it has already outgrown its headquarters in Barrington, Ill. The publisher of board books and picture books for babies and toddlers up to age three is moving this summer into a larger space in another Chicago suburb, Deerpark, to better accommodate its growing staff, which has doubled in size from the original nine to 20 employees. Cottage Door, which debuted with 18 releases in , will have titles in print by the end of this year. Fifteen titles are being released this spring, and 25 this fall, for a total of 35 frontlist releases in The publisher has tried out popular formats such as padded board books, books with flaps to lift, touch-and-feel books, books that make sounds, and books made with engineered paper. Expansion plans include jumping on the current trend of books with STEM and STEAM content, with books aimed at babies and toddlers, as well as publishing books for slightly older readers, ages four and five. The partnership with the Smithsonian, to develop board books for babies and toddlers up to age five, will focus on interactive books about natural habitats and the environment.
