First Light Publishing Puts Fun Focus on Children's Story Time
RICHMOND, VA - August 20, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- First Light Publishing
will enter the dog eat doggie world of children's publishing with the September
1st release of "Don't Play With Your Food!" (ISBN: 0-9754411-0-8). The book,
like the publishing company, was created with one goal in mind: to bring joy to
Rather than take the traditional "moral of the story" approach to children's
books, First Light Publishing seeks to create stories for story's sake. But this
is more than mere child's play for the publisher, which has a very serious
purpose for its titles.
As company spokesman Robert Black says, "We want to
produce fun and engaging books that stimulate a lifelong love of reading." With
its laugh out loud story poems, whimsical illustrations, and many surprise
endings, Don't Play With Your Food! is designed to meet that goal.
Founded by a former public school teacher, First Light Publishing understands the
often overlooked educational value of humor in literature. Knowing that many
novice readers approach the written page with a great deal of trepidation, this
publisher seeks to reward their efforts with a smile at the end of each page. The
side benefit of this approach is that much of the humor translates to adults and
often provides equal entertainment to parents reading to their children.
philosophy that "making reading fun is the best way to encourage reading," First
Light Publishing is likely to measure its success in smiles as well as sales.
About the Book
Don't Play With Your Food! is a "Toy Story" for food. Each page is a self-
contained story/poem that lets food get off the plate and dance around a little.
It is a playfully picturesque romp through the secret life of food.
