Children's Book Press


A message from Lorraine Garcia-Nakata
Publisher & Executive Director
Children's Book Press

Dear Friends and New Friends:

I need your help.

Children's Book Press continues to receive national recognition and awards....and with that comes increased demand for our books. Our challenge is having the cash flow needed to reprint the books in order to meet that demand. It is an interesting position and why I am asking for your help in order to make sure we continue to produce first voice children's books that reflect experiences of African-American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Latino, and Indigenous communities.

Here is how you can help.

*Make a gift of $1, $5, $10 or more to our Children's Book Press Measure of Success Campaign supporting a book printing and production fund. I'm serious, no gift is too small. This campaign can really take hold when you make your gift and send this message onto your friends and colleagues asking them to do the same. Yes, ask them to pass it onto their contacts and that's how we will meet our much-needed goal of $400,000 by May 2009. Children, teachers, and families all over the country are counting on our books.

Our 33 year-old-non-profit independent Press has been side swiped by the tough economic storm that we are all experiencing. It is serious, but I am not one to freeze in the road. Instead, in the spirit of our new national leadership, I am asking for your help so that we can make sure our work will continue on behalf of kids and families here and abroad.

You can make that difference!

My warmest thanks,

You should check out Adventurebox books. They are great for Kids aged 6-9 and have award winning writer Michael Morpurgo as a guest author in the upcoming March issue!
