About this project

Seeds-To-Read (S2R) is more than your typical children's book, because you get to create the book over, and over again. S2R comes with a list of words specific to each topic of the book.  The first book is all about the Seasons and Weather.  With velco strips at the bottom of every page, you and your child can take the individual words that come with the book to create each sentence of the book page by page.  You don't have to worry about your child memorizing the book, because you can create a new book each time you sit down and read it.  When your done reading, you can peel off all the words and stick them in the front of the book's velcro holding page.  If you have a beginning reader this is a great way for them to get practice with individual words they are learning while seeing and reading them contextually. This helps eliminate memorization that can come along with using flash cards, or reading the same book over and over again.

Risks and challenges

The most challenging part of having a book that needs velcro is finding someone to make it. I have decided to go the self publishing route using artbookbindery.com . The illustrations are already completed, and I will have Art Book Bindery do the binding and publishing. Then I will be purchasing velcro in bulk to add to the books after publication. My goals are to get Seeds-To-Read in schools, daycares, and homeschools, so that anyone working with children learning to read, can get them reading in a fun and interactive way. I've had such tremendous success and enthusiasm with my own son using Seeds-To-Read, and I want parents, caregivers, and teachers to experience the same!
