    Fiction or nonfiction? Although some traditional publishers are starting to say they'll handle e-books, I'm pretty sure what they are saying is they will handle the electronic rights and give guidance on e-booking (not that many of them know what guidance to give yet) on books also being represented for print. There (A) isn't enough money in most e-books currently for an agent, (B) just about the only publishers who would include an agent are ones looking for both the print and electronic market rights, and (C) it's too easy for an author to either find an e-publisher on his/her own or to do it her/himself to need to involve an agent.

    Although I think some of these publishers are only interested in both print and electronic publishing, these are the top-selling publishers on one major e-book distribution service (Fictionwise, owned by B&N) claiming to handle children's books:

    FICTION:
    Calderwood Books (http://www.calderwoodbooks.com/)
    DiskUs Publishing (http://www.diskuspublishing.com/)
    Fictionwise.com (http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/p1/Fictionwisecom/?)
    Harlequin (http://www.eharlequin.com/)
    Random House (http://www.randomhouse.com/)
    Twilight Times Books (http://twilighttimesbooks.com/)
    Writer Exchange E-Publishing (http://www.readerseden.com/writers/home.php)


    NONFICTION:
    DiskUs Publishing (http://www.diskuspublishing.com/)
    ebooksonthe.net (http://www.writewordsinc.com/index.html)
    Guardian Angel Publishing, Inc. (No Web site given)
    Random House (http://www.randomhouse.com/)
    Twilight Times Books (http://twilighttimesbooks.com/)

    E-booking is both so easy and new, though, that there's little reason why you couldn't just go to Kindle on the Amazon.com site or to a distributor/publisher like Smashwords and set it all up and launch it yourself.

    This company may suite what you are looking for:
    It seems like they have created a few Children's eBooks.

    Somehow the link doesn't show up. Google for Bunny Interactive.
