Jumping Cow Press Books (1000 Books Foundation)
Humorous, engaging & enlightening read-aloud picture books for young listeners & early readers.
The impacts of Literacy for Early Learners are abundant! Developing language & literacy skills begins at birth thru everyday loving interactions, such as sharing books. Jumping Cow Press publishes humorous, engaging & enlightening read-aloud picture books for young listeners & early readers and has recently partnered with the 1000 Books Foundation to support literacy!
By partnering with The Elkes Foundation and Jumping Cow Press, the 1000 Books Foundation is the proud recipient of thousands of copies of the highly praised “Cows Can’t” series.
“We are a non-profit that is comprised entirely of non-paid volunteers. Every dollar of this $10,000 direct-impact grant will go towards supporting 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten early literacy challenges nationwide”, said Diane A. Lee of the 1000 Books Foundation.“These titles are fantastic and are perfect for the age group that we serve,” said Ms. Lee.
“Cows Can’t Jump”, “Cows Can’t Quack” and “Cows Can’t Spin Silk” were created with early readers, ages six weeks to six years, in mind. “Cows Can’t Jump” focuses on actions, “Cows Can’t Quack” focuses on sounds, and “Cows Can’t Spin Silk” focuses on creations. The series features over 50 different animals and has become a staple of early childhood literacy programs nationwide. The Cows Can’t series is perfect for young listeners and beginning readers ages newborn to six years old. The series is published by Jumping Cow Press, which actively supports literacy programs and has partnered with a direct-impact foundation to provide tens of thousands of copies of the series at no cost to Reach Out and Read, Parent-Child Home Program, Pajama Program, Read to Grow, Raising a Reader, Kids Need to Read, Get Georgia Reading, Literacy, Inc. (LINC) and Read by 4th, all of which integrate the Cows Can’t series of books into their renowned early childhood literacy programs.
By listening to and reading aloud these fun, educational and engaging picture books, young children will learn the names of dozens of animals – and their actions, sounds, and creations – reinforcing early reading skills and a love of books! Cows Can’t Jump is available in multiple formats: Stubby & Stout™ Board-book (ideal baby shower gift), Glossy Paperback (for older children), Hardcover Board-book and Kindle. Cows Can’t Jump is featured on the Recommended Children’s Books list of the award-winning literacy organization Parent-Child Home Program and has received universal praise such as “On my list of all-time favorite picture books”, “Will fast become your child’s favorite bedtime story”, “A new staple in our daily reading”, “Will become a classic of early childhood literature” and “The next Goodnight Moon”.
