When reading doesn’t come easily to a child, it can be difficult to encourage them to pick up a book. Robert Breck Publishing has found a way to get children excited to read: make the child a part of the story. Through the company’s re-vamped site, http://www.BreckBooks.com, customers can select from 25 customizable titles which feature children’s favorite television characters, superheroes, and religious figures.
“We pride ourselves on a high quality product,” said Fleming. “What we publish are children’s books geared toward preteen and younger, in which the child is the star of the story. Yes, our books are fun to read. Our greater goal is to motivate and stimulate young readers through our personalized children’s books.”
Through a secure form on BreckBooks.com, customers can give the publisher the child’s name, relatives’ or friends’ names, hometown, and other details to be incorporated into a customized storyline.
Children will marvel over seeing their name alongside their favorite Sesame Street characters, including Big Bird, Elmo, Bert and Ernie. Together with the colorful characters, children will learn the alphabet and to count to 10. Children can even read about themselves in the context of classic tales like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Mother Goose.” Older children can soar alongside Superman and Wonder Woman, fight crime with Batman, or solve mysteries with Scooby-Doo and the gang. Children can read all about their athletic exploits in titles like “Football Star” and “Sports Superstar.” Currently, all titles are available in English, with Spanish titles slated to debut in 2012.
Books for special occasions are also available. Gift new parents customized baby keepsake books, which have plenty of room for added photos and mementos. Faith-based titles, such as “Baby Jesus,” “Kwanzaa,” and “Jewish Holidays,” personalize a child-friendly explanation of religious observances.
“We started out in 2002 as a non-profit organization publishing one title, ‘School is Fun,’ which we donated to Chicago area elementary schools in an effort to foster an early joy of reading,” said Fleming. “We personalized the books with the names of the student, their school name, and their teachers’ names. The students – even the ones who struggled with reading – just loved it!”
The non-profit portion of the company is still in operation, with Fleming actively seeking sponsors to help off-set the cost of publishing personalized titles for entire grades.
