Custom-Cover Baby Readers: Plan for 2024's First Babies!

In the Fall, TWB is on press with both of our soft-cover Baby Reader titles. It's the perfect time to design your program's Reader covers with useful contact information for your youngest participants' moms and dads.

Rock-A-Bye Baby Reader (Eng, Newborn - 1 yo) - soft cover

Despertar a la lectura (Sp, Newborn - 1 yo) - soft cover


Below, we've outlined 3 simple steps to guide you through TWB's custom-cover ordering process: 

1 - **Complete Order Form by Nov 1st**

Please provide us with a completed Order Form with all the necessary information. Including delivery address and the presence/absence of a delivery dock!

2 - Direct Your Cover Design

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. And, email your graphics files as attachments to us at:

3 - Await your PDF proof!

Upon receipt of your instructions and graphics files, Cheryl will start drafting your custom cover file.

Your project's designated Proofer will receive a PDF via email that incorporates the requested edits. This is an iterative process. Your Proofer will receive (and consult colleagues as necessary) until such time as your Proofer alerts TWB that the current PDF is approved as "Ready for the Presses".
