Publisher Gives English-Spanish Story App to Meet Multicultural Demand
Public offered rewards for helping get products into more libraries and schools
While Premio's activity and language books, ebooks and app are nationally-lauded, many libraries and schools prefer hard cover books. Premio's distributors have asked for them. But printing hard cover books takes a lot of cash. So Premio has come up with a fun way to raise funds, while rewarding donors and raising awareness of the need for multicultural representation in literature--especially children's literature.
The publisher has launched an Indiegogo campaign where donors can get apps, books, ebooks, and pre-orders of hard covers and new releases as perks. The campaign can be found here: http://igg.me/
Sounds in the House is a humorous interactive story with text and audio narration in both English and Spanish, a pronunciation guide, a finding activity and--of course--sounds. Young children and adults will enjoy the comic characters created by illustrator Channing Jones. The jittery puppy, at first unnerved when he hears strange noises, takes action, then finds he is safe and loved.
Premio Publishing & Gozo Books has been delighting families and educators since 2004. Our multicultural non-fiction stories, ebooks, app, and activity books (including Spanish and bilingual books with pronunciation guide, finding/counting mysteries, and kid’s cookbook) have diverse characters in funny, engaging vivid color. Nationally-lauded (ForeWord Reviews, Horn Book blog, School Library Journal, Barnes & Noble) our educational stories capture attention and create repeat readers. They are not about ethnic or racial diversity; they simply feature Hispanic, black, Asian, white and mixed-race children and address fear, courage, sharing and giving.
