Reading Is Learning
Cottage Door Press has one driving philosophy: Reading is learning. That’s why we believe that every child deserves an excellent first book experience—beginning on the day they’re born. Because we know the importance of reading aloud to children, we work hard to create smart, fresh, and innovative board books that interest, inform, and stretch growing minds.
While we’re doing our best to reach as many little ones and parents as we can with our message and high-quality books, we know that, on our own, we have a hard time connecting with the at-risk children who have little or no access to books. Luckily we found Bernie’s Book Bank, an organization that collects, processes, and distributes new and gently used books to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk children.
For the past two years, we have volunteered at Bernie’s, helping to sticker, sort, and pack books for redistribution. We have also donated books to support our mutual mission of getting books into the hands of little ones. And last November, we ran a book-for-book promotion that gave our customers the opportunity to get involved—for each book purchased on our website, we donated a book to Bernie’s Book Bank. It was incredibly rewarding to deliver these books, and we look forward to expanding opportunities for our customers to get involved in this important endeavor.
