I frequently receive email from companies asking me to share news or discounts with my readers. Each week I’ll gather the best requests and share them with you here.
STORYTIME FOR ME
Story Time For Me has released a library of FREE interactive multimedia storybooks for homes, schools, daycares and libraries. The program will encourage children to read entertaining, animated stories with socially relevant themes such as ‘Not to bully’, ‘Sharing’, ‘Being responsible for the environment’, ‘Helping your neighbor’, etc.
Access to books is essential to reading development. The only variable that directly correlates with reading scores is the number of books in the home. According to A.C. Nielsen & Co the average child watches over four hours of television per day and before finishing elementary school, that same child will have seen 8,000 murders on TV.
Story Time for Me wants to give free access to 100’s of quality children’s books. But that’s only part of our mission. All books published by Story Time For Me teach good morals and values with socially relevant themes. Books with uplifting story lines can make a positive impression on the minds of new readers. Our wholesome, entertaining, animated books feature easily identifiable animal characters learning to make positive decisions in everyday life situations. Parents can be sure Story Time For Me books will entertain their children while teaching them good moral values.
In addition, a personalized activity book series starting with EARTH DAY on April 22 is available for educators, parents and children. Downloadable pdf’s can be printed out which will encourage reading, writing and illustrating. More information on this program can be found here www.StoryTimeForMe.com/teachers.
Story Time For Me, founded in 2009, is a unique literary website designed specifically for toddlers and children ages 1 to 8 encouraging them to read and listen to enjoyable, online, multimedia picture books. Story Time For Me offers a one-of-a-kind, animated, personalized line of books for both retail and promotional marketing. In this the personalized Story Time For Me series, the child (or the business) becomes the “star” of the book by having his or her photo inserted and animated throughout the entire story in different poses and settings.
