Strawberries Press (just refer to us as Strawberries) is a new publishing company with refreshingly different ideas about writing, illustrating, and developing children's picture books. We refer to the presentations and elements that go into the production of our picture books as the interactive reading and learning concept. Strawberries books are beautifully illustrated and designed to be high-quality publications that children will love and treasure. For example, our interactive picture book for train enthusiasts entitled Choo-Choo Charlie Presents Railroad Box Cars provides a fun story by Charlie the Locomotive about railroad box cars in the nonfiction genre. Entertaining and informative, children learn how to identify the parts of a box car; the definition of a box car; why box cars have brake wheels; how box cars were used for specialized purposes, such as refrigerator and cattle cars, and military sleeper and galley cars; how box cars are being replaced by intermodal containers that are trucked or shipped to their destinations; the dangerous practice of freight-hopping; and an introduction to a lovable singing “hobo” called “Boxcar Willie”. A fun test is included at the end of the book. Just send Strawberries the completed test and your child will receive a beautifully printed Reading Certificate that he or she can proudly frame and display for all his or her friends to see. Reading traditional picture books, watching videos, visiting websites that contain associated subjects, taking fun tests, and earning Reading Certificates represent the interactive parts of the Strawberries reading and learning concept. Strawberries picture books are specifically written for preadolescents between the ages of approximately 8 and 12. Younger readers with advanced reading skills and older readers who enjoy simpler subject presentations will also benefit from Strawberries books.Biografía del autor:
When I was 4 or 5 years old, my mother purchased several Golden Books for me, one of which was entitled “The Little Engine that Could.” In the tale, a long train must be pulled over a high mountain. Larger and stronger engines are asked to pull the train, but for various reasons they refuse. The request is sent to a small engine, who agrees to try. The little engine succeeds in pulling the train over the mountain while repeating over and over again its motto: “I think I can, I think I can!” That little Golden Book about how a little blue engine overcomes a seemingly impossible task became one of my most treasured possessions. I suspect, in some small subconscious way, that was the beginning of my penchant for writing. I’m retired now, but my entire working career involved writing and editing in some form or another. As a technical writer, nonfiction writer, managing editor, and publications manager over a span of thirty years, my wife and I decided I should continue my writing in retirement as a children’s book writer—specifically in the nonfiction genre, like “Choo-Choo Charlie Presents Railroad Box Cars,” so kids learn about some interesting facts concerning the subjects they read as opposed to just pure fiction stories.
