I have a little one that totally emerges herself in books. She loves her books so much, she sleeps with them. Edith will pick out a book for me to read to her, then insists she reads the book to me. I'm very proud to have a child that loves books.
Edith and I have recently been introduced to Home Grown Books, an independent publisher based out of New York devoted to supporting organic learning and creativity in early learning. They create books that are educationally sound enough to be used in the classroom and visually captivating enough to be displayed on the coffee table.
Their books feature artwork by emerging and established artist that will captivate the imagination of your little one. Each of their artists create books that will take your child on a visual adventure while offering an educational experience.
We had the opportunity to read one of their books A Place to Live by artist Case Jernigan. Case's illustrations are influenced by his travels, dreams and memories to the Bronx Zoo. His book, A Place to Live is beautifully illustrated and sparks imagination by placing everyday objects in expected places. For example, A Tower on a Whale or A Balloon Over Land as the balloon is carrying an elephant. A Place to Live allows your child's imagination to run wild with endless possibilities.
Home Grown Books believe in caring for your child's mind along with caring for the environment. Their board books are printed in New York with 100% recycled (min 35% post consumer) CCNB paperboard with an aqueous coating. Their paperback books are printed on 50% post consumer paper using low-VOC vegetable inks, and renewable wind-powered energy. Their book pack packaging is printed in New York on paper from managed forest using low-VOC vegetable inks and renewable wind-powered energy. Pretty impressive, huh?
I am so impressed with Home Grown Books and will definitely be purchasing some book packs for Edith! They make the best gifts for your little one. Start encouraging the love for reading with Home Grown Books!
