“A book is a dream that you hold in your hand.” Neil Gaiman
In early 2019 my son and I created a new company, Womb to Bloom to Classroom. We offer beautifully illustrated picture books, by artist Kimmo Hellström, for our target audience of parents, grandparents, and preschool teachers to introduce “concepts” in Mathematics, Astronomy, Archaeology, Science, and more.
Researchers have introduced statistical evidence about the importance of reading to and with children. Early education researchers agree that 85% of a child’s brain develops by the time they turn 4! We believe babies and young children should be flooded with beautiful images and concepts on subjects introduced later in school.
We hope to encourage adults to read picture books to prenatal babies, to preschool children, and kids … from Womb to BLOOM to Classroom. There are over 40 million children in the U.S. from the ages of one day to 7 years old. Many of these children hear roughly 30 million fewer words by the age of three than other children in the U.S. Our goal is to change these statistics by creating children’s books from Womb to BLOOM to Classroom.
On Jan. 1, 2021, we will introduce our Womb to BLOOM to Classroom Series, beginning with our first book, Numbers from Heaven, Mathematics: Book One. On February 1, 2021, the second book in the series, Blueberry Pi, Mathematics: Book Two, will be released.
On January 1, 2021, we will release the first book in our Mystery Hunters Series, The Lost Polymath, Book One: Continents. On April 1, 2021, our second book in this series, Chaos & The Missing Butterfly, Book Two: Mathematics, will be released. This series is for kids 8-13. Sarah and Christian have mysterious dreams that provide clues to help solve each mystery on their journey, while an unseen force tries to stop them from completing their quest. This series engages the reader and a friend to become members of the team.
The reader will become a member of the Mystery Hunters team and answer 7 questions in each of the seven chapters. The reader is also encouraged to draw two pictures in the book while listening to their favorite song. Kids will learn and be entertained while reading books in this series on Mathematics, Science, Continents, Mythology, Astronomy, and more.
“A house without books is like a room without windows.” Heinrich Mann
We hope each child enjoys these adventures and that you come along for the ride!
