Giveaway - Zodiworks Book and Story Bag


Zodiworks publishes early reader books that were designed to meet a need for the Montessori classroom - books with entertaining stories, easily decodable vocabulary, and that looked like books so children would feel like they were really reading. With beautiful artwork by co-founder Jenn Howard, aka Montessori Mama, Zodibooks appeals to children, and their parents.

With Zodibooks, children have more than just books to read, they have books to play with. Each book has a companion story bag of the key objects in the book, so the child can act out each story. Each bag also contains word cards for every word in the book (including punctuation) so children can reproduce any page, match words to objects, create their own sentences, or other activities with the book and objects.

What comes in the Zodiworks Sam Series 1 Box

Check out this video which shows exactly how Zodibooks helps children learn to read through the variety of tools that come with the books.

Co-founder Robin Jettinghoff is a personal friend in real life.  She is also seeking funding through PeerBackers to publish the next set of books.

Oh what a wonderful idea. I too would like all of them and am having a hard time choosing but I know my little one would enjoy "Liz has to go to bed"

My choice of book would be SAM. It'd probably be best to start at the beginning for my 3 year old.
