Our colorful, lively posters will brighten any room where parents of young children gather -- a waiting room, clinic classroom, library, or family resource center.
Each poster presents one stand-alone Parent Note from the Rock-A-Bye Baby Reader for special emphasis. The poster illustrations remind parents of various well-loved nursery rhymes that are so useful and fun to read to babies. Photos of real parents reading to their children create the expectation that reading aloud is a family activity.
Each poster is matte-laminated to protect it and to reduce glare from overhead lights. The measurements are 11"x17". As such, they're useful in small spaces, or can be arranged as a four-square mosaic or even as a 68" border, whatever your space allows.
Currently, the posters are available in English only. Please contact us if your program would like to be alerted when a Spanish set is available.
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.
