Childrens's Book Press was the first freelance press in the United States to concentrate on the publication of children's fiction by and about the colour. From 1975 Children's Book Press supported common experience with culture that was either neglected or wrongly represented in children's music. By 2012 the children's book press became the masthead of LEE & LOW BOK.
Masthead also publishes image guides with a broad spectrum of different cultural backgrounds, with an accent on bi-lingual English-Spanish publications. High-grade bi-lingual textbooks help to create a sound basis for alphabetization in any of the languages and at the same time confirm and confirm a child's identification, cultural background and mother tongue. LEE & LOW Bookes embossed with the LEE & LOW Bookes logo reflects Children's Book Press's important commitment to promoting bilinguality, alphabetisation and learning.
Harriet Rohmer started the first publishing house in the U.S. in 1975 with a scholarship from the U.S. Department of Education Children's Book Press, focusing solely on high-quality multi-cultural and bi-lingual children's music.
Children's Book Press History | Lee & Low Books
Harriet Rohmer started the first publishing house in the U.S. in 1975 with a scholarship from the U.S. Department of Education Children's Book Press, focusing solely on high-quality multi-cultural and bi-lingual children's music. Childrens Book Press's early works featured folk tales and stories inspired by the verbal tradition of tribal people throughout America.
Childrens Book Press soon added tales from the United States, volumes of poems and multi-cultural anthologies to its editors. Their dedication to multi-cultural and bi-lingual children's books and the promotion of young writers and performers has permanently transformed the publishers' world. Today Children's Book Press, now an LEE & LOW BOOKS print, is continuing Mrs Rohmer's heritage by releasing modern tales from Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander, Asian/Pacific Islander, Nordic America and multi-racial societies.
Children's Book Press has won a number of prizes, among them the renowned Coretta Scott King Award and the Pura Belpré Award of the American Library Association.
