Synopsis

This is a children's picture book full of rhymes about Ramone's adventure to the moon in his silver rocket.

I believe, like Cambridge professor Morag Styles, that: "Children’s responses to poetry are innate, instinctive, natural – maybe it starts in the womb, with the mother's heartbeat? Children are hard-wired to musical language – taking pleasure in the rhythm, rhyme, repetition and other patternings of language that are a marked feature of childhood."  

Coupled with fun images, I am certain this book would be popular with both parents and children.  Thanks for looking. 

Audience

The audience is parents of non-readers and very young readers.

The catchy rhymes are intended to introduce complex, probably unfamiliar, words to young readers.  Indeed, this is a valuable strategy as stated in the Harvard Education Letter:

“...a growing body of research and classroom practice show that building a sophisticated vocabulary at an early age is also key to raising reading success—and narrowing the achievement gap. At schools like Lee Academy, teachers are overcoming the age-old habit of speaking to young children in simplified language and instead deliberately weaving higher-level word choices into preschool and primary grade classrooms. Whether it’s a discussion at morning meeting, informal talk at the block area, or a selection of read-aloud books, teachers are exposing younger children to language that, in many cases, exceeds the vocabulary level of a typical conversation between college graduates.”

In addition, I am on the Georgia Writers Registry.  This gives me an opportunity to read at schools and libraries.  Indeed, most libraries I have visited are big fans of children's authors and have a ready-made advertising strategy for an eager audience.

1106 Design, LLC logo 1106 Design, LLC

1106 Design provides book design, production, and publishing services for independent authors who seek all the quality of traditional publishing without forfeiting their rights and royalties in return. 1106 Design provides traditional publisher quality with one-stop, end-to-end services from copyediting to worldwide distribution. We operate just like a publisher with one difference: YOU maintain complete control of your book, your schedule, and most importantly, your payments.

In our model, distribution accounts are set up in your name. When a book is sold, the retailer takes a cut, the printing cost is deducted, and the balance is deposited directly into your bank account, never ours first. The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you. Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $8,059. Fiction titles are slightly lower, $7,085.

A rocketeer named Ramone
Breakfasted on a t-bone
Then climbed into the nose cone
    In his silver rocket.

He tested out his earphone
And, getting a good dial tone,
He blasted through the ozone
    In his silver rocket...
