What Is Charge Mommy Books?
Mixing her years of editorial experience, her love for writing, and a newfound passion for teaching children HOW to read, Brooke is proud to announce the launch of Charge Mommy Books, an independent children’s book publisher dedicated to literacy.
We recognize that a love of reading comes from exposure to good stories early on, and to engaging stories that children can read on their own. That is why Charge Mommy is publishing a series of picture books, decodable readers, and early reader books that will take children from being read to through reading independently. As a mom, I know it can be hard to know which books to choose. Charge Mommy Books aims to be a brand that you can trust to grow with your child.
Our mission is not to only educate, but to inspire a lifelong love of reading. If a kid can have fun reading a book, they’ll want to read it again and again and again. At Charge Mommy Books our goal is not only to provide children with high-entertainment and high-quality stories, but to engage them in the act of storytelling!
Above all, Charge Mommy Books is backed by a foundation in literacy, with the aim of promoting literacy and creativity, and getting books in the hands of more children, in particular those who do not always have access to them.
The importance of literacy shows in every book Charge Mommy Books publishes. Every early reader and decodable book put out by Charge Mommy includes seven pages of literacy activities to help strengthen comprehension before a child even puts the book down. Additional resources to help parents teach their children to read are available on chargemommybooks.com.
As part of our literacy initiative, 10 percent of profits on the sale of all Charge Mommy Books will be donated to various literacy initiatives, with the goal of ultimately being able to donate one book per book sold to the places that need them most.
