NOW IN ITS 5th PRINTING! 25K copies distributed in English. Also printed in Spanish. The United Way of SE Michigan wanted a new brochure that would educate new parents on the importance of talking to, reading to and telling stories to their newborn babies and toddlers. The organization also wanted to let parents know the milestones that they could expect their babies to reach. Instead of a brochure, we put the info into a storybook that they could take home from the hospital and read right away. The United Way is still distributing Tell Me a Story to new parents in Michigan hospitals . And I'm happy to say that I get notes telling me that it is the "favorite" book of many children.
I am also delighted to say I am embarking on a labor of love with a filmmaker and the illustrator to bring the story to life through animation. Stay tuned!
