What Do Parents Do? by Jeanie Ransom, illus. by Cyd Moore

What Do Parents Do to get their kids to read?  If they’re Atlanta Falcon fans, maybe they go online. ransom

Peachtree Publishers teamed up with the Falcons to create “Read with a Falcon” .   The on-line videos give kids the chance to read their favorite books along with Falcon players and cheerleaders. 

I found out about this program after Cyd Moore, the illustrator for What Do Parents Do?, sent Jeanie Ransom, the book’s author a link to their video.  What a great way to get kids to read who might not think reading is cool.

I loved watching Michael Boley’s reactions as he read Jeanie’s book.  I cracked up when he read the line “Somebody always gets hurt when you play rough.”  You could definitely tell when something struck him as funny.

You may not know a football player or other athlete, but your little grey cells should be sparking.  What could you do to publicize your book?
