If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I am a HUGE fan of TOON BOOKS. If you don't please read TOON BOOKS: Why I Love Them and Why You Should Too!, which explores the interesting background of the creator of the series, her inspiration (the boring books available when her son was learning to read) and all the other fantastic things about this great new series - including the educational aspects of the books and the amazing illustrators working with TOON. My only wish, since TOON BOOKS was launched in 2008 was that they would release their titles in paperback - and now they are!! Below is a press release announcing this and instructions on how you can get a FREE copy of one of the new TOON paperbacks!
New Paperbacks arriving soon at stores!
The paperbacks feature a brand-new cover design, which make each book's level clear on the front, and explain the levelling system on the back, as well as TOON into Reading! guides in each book to help children read. These slim and sprightly volumes measure 6 inches by 9 inches, and are priced at $4.99 each. Hurray! You'll also be able to download a free educator's guide for each book, complete with lesson plan, activity sheets, and guidelines for integration to Common Core standards.
The new TOON Giveaway:
