Making the Move

13 Mar

 

2nd Edition now available!

I have some exciting news!  The Mommy, Tell Me a Story book series is being moved to a new publisher.  We are so excited about the new changes in store for us and want to tell you all about it.

Richer Publications: An Imprint of Richer Press and Richer Life, LLC is a full service, specialty Trade publisher whose sole goal is to shape thoughts and change lives for the better.  You can learn more about them at www.richerlifellc.com

Because of this move, we have been able to add some fun changes to our books.  The story line and art work are unchanged, but we have added some unique features that I think will make the books more enjoyable for little ones and caregivers alike.

The first thing we added was the “Big People Page.”  This is just an opening letter from us to all the “Big People” out there.  We know that we live in a world of great variety and not every child is being raised by Mom and Dad anymore.  There are Foster Parents, Grandparents, Single Parents, Aunts, Uncles and even friends that all long to help their
little ones reach their full potential in life.  We want to help them know what to look for in our books and give them a better understanding of our goals in this book series.

We have also added a “Fun Facts & Questions” page after the story.  I give simple facts about some of the characters in each of the books.  Our target age range for the
books is between 3-6 so I tried to come up with some things that they would find interesting to know and at the same time not too complicated for their little minds to grasp.  I also provide some interactive questions that will help reinforce some
of the lessons being taught in each book.  As a parent myself, I am always thankful for tools to help me in any way I can.

Last but not least, every book will now have two coloring pages at the back featuring the two main characters in the story.  After handing out countless coloring pages at schools and book events we discovered just how much children love them.  We do encourage caregivers to photocopy the coloring pages on the “Big People Page” so that
children can color them over and over again.

We think these new additions are a perfect complement to our series, and we can’t wait to share them with you.  The first book to be completed was Mommy, Tell Me a Story about What Daddy Does. It has just been released this week and can be purchased at amazon.com.  You can also purchase them through our publisher’s site for a special new release price of $10 @ www.richerlifellc.com.

The next two books should be done shortly so be sure to keep an eye out for them.  Our fourth book Mommy, Tell Me a Story about a Fish will be published through Richer Press as well with all these great new features this summer!  Happy Reading!
