RALEIGH, NC (PRWEB) November 28, 2006
Knowledge Adventure®, the leader in educational software, has partnered up with the leader in self-publishing, Lulu.com, to release Knowledge Adventure Books by You, a make-your-own book software program for kids with print and publishing capabilities. This new product is designed to allow kids eight and up to create, edit, illustrate and personalize books that celebrate the storyteller in every child.
Knowledge Adventure Books by You software is a collaborative effort between Knowledge Adventure and Lithgow Palooza, a company developed by award-winning actor John Lithgow and Broadthink to promote creativity in children. Kids can design a book cover, add an "About the Author" page, choose illustrations and complete the publishing process with step-by-step guidance from Lithgow via whimsical video and audio segments. The combination of Lithgow's rich storytelling abilities with Knowledge Adventure's aptitude for creating educational software programs makes learning exciting for kids.
After kids complete their masterpiece, parents can order paperback or hardcover copies of their children's books through Lulu.com. Bob Young, CEO of Lulu.com, says, "Knowledge Adventure's Books by You software and Lulu's web technology give children the chance to actually hold in their hands a personalized book that they created. This will be one of those remarkably popular Christmas gifts that kids will be talking about for years."
The ability to purchase physical copies of their books allows kids to share their work with family members, add a new piece to their bedtime story collection, or show it to friends at school.
