Animals Rock!
– a children’s book based on rock formations that resemble animals

by Brooke Keith

We all know that reading rocks and that Animals Rock!  Now you have the chance to combine the two and promote early literacy in our home state of Colorado during the second annual Reading Rocks! Campaign. Thanks to all of you who made last year’s campaign so successful!

I had been searching for just the right organization to connect with and to help me give back to the Colorado community at-large. I've found it in Reach Out and Read Colorado, which is a local chapter of a 21 year-old national organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness. They do this by distributing books in pediatric exam rooms nationwide as well as giving advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.

This is where Animals Rocks! fits in. I'd like to donate 1,000 signed copies to Reach Out and Read Colorado to be distributed to the health clinics of Colorado. In addition to promoting early literacy, Animals Rock! encourages kids to get outside and explore nature, which also promotes good health.

The next step is to partner with individuals and businesses and give you the opportunity to be a part of bringing Animals Rock! to the waiting rooms and pediatric exam rooms of health clinics all over the state from Denver to Durango.

The sponsorship is $5 per book and this goes towards the purchase of the book and the delivery of the book to the various health clinics around the state through Reach Out and Read Colorado.

 Please read a Denver Post article on Reach Out and Read Colorado:

My goal is to donate 1,000 copies of Animals Rock! by September 30th. The sponsorship opportunities are as follows. Please let me know what questions you have. Thank you for your consideration and for helping kids get hooked on reading at an early age with the help of Animals Rock! – it makes all the difference.
