Picture Book Preschool is a preschool curriculum by Sherry Early based on picture books that she has been reading to her children for the past twenty years.

Each week of Picture Book Preschool is built around a theme, and includes a suggested character trait to work on, a Bible verse, and seven picture books to read to your children. Here is an example of the first week, built around the theme of the new year and the changing seasons:

Week 1 (Dec/Jan) THE NEW YEAR/SEASONS

Character Trait: Patience

Bible Verse: It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter. Psalm 74:17

    I’m a New York City-based father, grandfather, singer and songwriter, and I recently wrote a children’s book and song geared toward children 2-7 years of age entitled: “I Wonder What It’s Like To Be.” The book and song feature a boy named Wonder who asks, “I wonder what it’s like to be…” some of the animals and things he comes across in his life, including birds, bees and trees. The book recently received an Honorable Mention at the Paris Book Festival and the San Francisco Book Festival.

    Based on the excellent content that you provide for teachers, parents and grandparents on your blog and Facebook pages, I thought that you might like to share some information about the book and song.

    Below is a link to the book’s press release, which includes an embedded YouTube video that contains the entire song and an animated version of the book:


    The printed book and Kindle version are available on Amazon.com, and the song is available on iTunes, Amazon.com and other online music retailers. The main website link for the book and song is http://www.iwonderdoyou.com, and a link to our Facebook page can also be found on the website.

    I’m available for an e-mail-based interview if you’d like to send a few questions, and I’d be happy to send a copy of the printed book to one of your readers anywhere in the world if you’d like to run a contest or choose someone from a list of your readers/fans.

    In celebration of May being “Get Caught Reading Month” (getcaughtreading.org), as well as Children’s Book Week (an event administered by Every Child A Reader – ecarfoundation.org) from May 13-19, the Amazon Kindle version of the book will be available from May 11-May 31 (Pacific Time) for 50% off its normal price (just $1.49 instead of $2.99).

    Please let me know if you’d like to share any of the educational resources I’ve provided above, and I hope to hear from you soon!

    Best Regards,
