DREAM CHILDREN'S BOOKS
by Lorna Lorraine
Eight years ago, Dream Publishing officially launched Dream Children’s Books with its own Imprint to carry on the learning legacy for children. The department started with its first title, Little Minds, and since then has blossomed to seven titles accompanied by a slew of parenting workshops. Dream Children’s Books is aware and committed to guiding parents to invest in the learning development of their children.
This summer, we have started to take a closer look at changes. As a children’s books producer Dream Children’s Books aims to be culturally responsive to society’s changing demographics. One of the ways is in the new book niche, Third World Children’s Tales. What better way to provide a culturally diverse context for children than through reading. Children can connect with characters in the stories to heighten their own awareness and sense of adventure.
In earlier centuries children’s literature was primarily designated to entertain and socially condition children. During those times, adults and children relied on the same literary source simultaneously. However, literature for children has recently developed primarily for their amusement, enjoyment and education. Dream Children’s Books recognizes education as a necessity and not an indulgence, and views multicultural books as a durable extension to the typical literary client.
As a grandmother of seven, I recognize the essential guidelines for the developmental goals for infants. I invite parents, caregivers, and grandparents to read our workshops and harvest the healthy pastimes that can be shared within your respective families.
