Mission Hills, CA (PRWEB) March 6, 2007
Since 2002, Lulu.com, the premiere online destination for publishing, has seen its customers create and publish more than 4,500 children's books and 750 parenting books. In honor of its first annual celebration of Read Across America - the National Education Association's annual effort to motivate children to read 365 days a year - Lulu.com has highlighted four key books to encourage parents and children to bring the joy of reading into their daily routine.
In conjunction with this goal, Lulu.com has officially selected America Learns' newest book, Bonding While Learning, as one of the four "Read Across America" must-reads for 2007. Bonding While Learning is the only book in the parenting category included in this prestigious list.
This unique and interactive book serves to help parents and grandparents teach their young children to read and write through engaging, relationship building activities; activities that are also steeped in meaningful research and practice. Many Bonding While Learning activities are especially tailored for today's busy parents, helping them to prepare their children for reading success during everyday experiences in the car, in restaurants, and even while waiting in line at the store.
"Bonding While Learning is a perfect book to share with your child during 'Read Across America'," said Gail Jordan of Lulu.com. "The book's innovative, easy to use activities truly help parents make learning time feel like quality family time. You can't beat that."
"It's a true honor for our newest book to be highlighted by Lulu.com," said Gary Kosman, co-author of Bonding While Learning and CEO of America Learns. "We're grateful that Lulu recognizes the unique service we're providing to families through Bonding While Learning, giving parents the opportunity to help their children learn to read and write through activities filled with love and laughter."
