Three simple steps to completing your custom-order of Rock-A-Bye Baby Readers and Despertar a la lectura:
Please provide us with a completed Order Form with all the necessaries. Including delivery address and the presence/absence of a delivery dock!
These templates define best "real estate" for your community's custom material on the covers. Refer to Areas A through E when directing your edits and graphics placements. If you download the template, you can write your texts on a print-out and email a scan back to us. Or, you could email your edits and cite the template's "Area X" to help us place your edits correctly.
Upon receipt of your instructions and graphics files, Cheryl will start drafting your custom cover file.
Your project's designated Proofer will be emailed a PDF that incorporates the requested edits. This is an iterative process, so that person should be prepared to review (and consult colleagues as necessary).
Additional editing rounds will continue until such time as your Proofer emails TWB that the current PDF is "Ready for Print".
We'll work to get to that point with ALL custom soft- covers by Sept 4th.

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.
