Picture Read It

#Sponsored Post


Picture Read It is a wonderful company that has a fun new concept in the works designed to help make reading with your children uniquely more fun! In October, 2014 they will publish their first book, An Invitation to a Pirate Birthday Party. What makes the book unique is that it will be an intricately drawn storybook with no words. Your children will make up the words as they go.

This would be such a fun concept for reading with your little ones at home, and it would be fun for a classroom too! In fact, Picture Read It was developed as a method to introduce storytelling to young children, ages 3-10, in the classroom.

Right now you can follow along with the book creation process by joining the Picture Read It fan club. In addition, anyone who signs up for the free fan club , between now and July 30th, 2014, will get a $3 off coupon that will be good towards the purchase of the book coming out in the Fall.

As a Picture Reader, you can expect to...

  • Receive the quarterly Big Stories E-Newsletter

  • Be the first to hear about new books
  • Interact with our staff on the design of new books
  • Receive updates on development of new books
  • Purchase advance copies of new books
  • Request signed copies of books
  • Request personal phone calls from our author, Mesemondo
  • Learn about community events, book signings or other experiences
  • Receive discounts, coupons and specials
  • Sign up for contests
  • And more...
Over the summer, Picture Read It will provide an opportunity for fan club members to participate in the construction of a children's book (awesome!). They will be posting bi-monthly updates to keep readers informed about the illustrating, designing, printing, and other areas involved within the elements of publishing. They will also be offering activities for children, discounts for their members, and other really cool things. At the end of summer, one lucky fan club member will receive a signed, commemorative sketch from the book to be released in October (2014).

Check out the site, where you will find a section for teachers, and a section for parents. Each area is chock full of information on not only the upcoming book release, but also initiatives and processes Picture Read It is involved in. It's really so much more than any one thing, and if you do a little exploring, I think you're going to find quite a few things that you like.
