Lexington, KY (PRWEB) December 23, 2009
Children’s book author Celia Banks has just ended a successful Fall tour of her exciting and well-received God’s Word is Just for Me series. The tour targeted the Lexington, Kentucky area stopping in at schools, churches and organizations. The end of the tour also marks the beginning of the Banks’ new e-promotion designed to give children the gift of reading by offering each book from the series for only $9.
"The most memorable moments of our fall tour was the expression on the face of the little children as the Biblical stories came alive to them during each of our readings. It is amazing the amount of information they seem to retain about the Bible stories as they relate to and identify with our uniquely created characters," owner Celia Banks said.
The offer is a special thank you from Banks to all who have supported her and the God’s Word is Just for Me series. Banks believes “giving books can translate into a new found love of reading that will carry a child through life.” Studies have shown reading aloud is one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to promote literacy and when children are introduced to books early and consistently they do better in school.
The promotion runs from December 21, 2009 through December 24, 2009 - great for last minute gift ideas or buy ahead gifts for birthdays, christenings and other special events. Christmas orders must be received by December 21, 2009 at http://www.CeliaBanks.com
“Through this series, your children will learn to trust in the promises of God and develop a love for Bible stories through this unique and innovative story-telling art form,” Banks said.
