About Blue Wave Classroom

Blue Wave Classroom is a subsidiary of Enslow Publishers, Inc. We bring information texts to your classroom with great nonfiction books. Most books align with the Common Core State Standars.


The mission of Enslow Publishers, Inc., is to publish high-quality educational nonfiction books for children and young adults. Blue Wave Classroom extends this mission into school classrooms, in addition to school libraries and public libraries. Our goals are that readers will be able to trust our products and that the books will satisfy their needs.


Since its founding in 1976 by Ridley M. Enslow, Jr., a veteran of major New York publishing houses, Enslow Publishers, Inc., has specialized in quality series nonfiction books for children and young adults. The company is now run by two of his sons, Mark Enslow, who serves as president, and Brian Enslow, who acts as vice president and publisher.


The company publishes hundreds of new paperback and library-bound titles a year for students from Pre-K through twelfth grades. All titles are available directly from Enslow Publishers, Inc., major book distributors, retail bookstores and online retailers. Enslow's award-winning titles have been recognized by the American Library Association, the NAACP, the National Council for the Social Studies, and the Society of School Librarians International. Books cover subjects including biography, contemporary issues, health, history & government, holidays & customs, math, science & technology, science projects & experiments, and sports & recreation.


Enslow publishes two main lists per year, spring and fall. Spring titles become available starting January 1 of the calendar year, and Fall titles June 1. In 2005 we introduced Enslow Elementary, an imprint of Enslow Publishers, which brings quality nonfiction books to young readers.


Enslow Publishers, Inc., does almost everything but print the books! Enslow Publishers, Inc., contracts with outside authors to write the books. Editorial, production, marketing, warehousing, and shipping functions are handled at the Berkeley Heights location, to ensure high standards and quality books for all customers.
