Our Baby and Toddler Readers are colorful rhyme books written for new parents and their young children.
The Readers are hybrids of (1) educational pamphlet to parents on the importance of reading to young children, (2) illustrated rhyme books to read aloud, and (3) gentle advertising for community libraries as family resources.
Rock-A-Bye Baby Reader and Despertar a la lectura are for families of infants (0-1 yr). Bunnaby Bunny and El conejito Claudio are our English and Spanish titles for toddlers (1-3 yrs) and their parents.
Seeking Family Models
We need a few
more 0-3 yr-olds + their families to model for new Reader...
TWB is completing our Somali Family Reader over the summer here in Minneapolis. Please contact us if your young family would like to model reading aloud in that book (moms, dads*, grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, AND their 0-3 yr-old). Photo shoots are ~20 minutes, and can be held at a nearby library, school, park, home, etc. While we welcome Somali families, our goal is to show all families reading to young children. All families are welcome!!
Photo shoots are fun and casual -- plus, you'll receive your own copy of the finished
board book at our Book Party for all participants. It's a fun way to be a role model!
Call Cheryl (612-990-6011) if you're interested.
*TWB loves to have dads show off their reading-aloud technique.
Custom Reader Updates
Thanks to participants of our
Spring 19 soft-cover Baby Readers! We'll next be on press Nov 7th.
July 3: The files for all Custom Boards have been passed to printer. Thanks for quick reviews and edits!
We're on press in next week. After the Readers have been printed and assembled, we'll contact you IF any overage was produced
of your titles.
My group is considering custom Baby Readers as a part of a new initiative...
While your organization is in the planning stages, we can work with you to create a mock-up custom cover. You'll have a draft custom version so colleagues have something tangible to consider during your presentation. Contact Cheryl for more information: 612-990-6011.
Preparing for an Early Learning committee meeting?
We can send you sample copies of our Baby and/or Toddler Readers. As you discuss your community's first outreach to new parents, colleagues may review the nursery
rhymes, photos and Parent Notes.
