Spotlight on Stacey Kannenberg

I am so honored that Stacey has been a part of some of our gift baskets. As a mom to three little ones, after seeing all my children use the books, I can honestly say that these books are a definite must have for any young child. Here is some information that has been provided by Stacey herself.

Might you be interested in the Ready To Learn Mom? I am a mom inspired by Oprah to help empower parents to get involved in the education of their kids . If two brothers from Ohio can change the face of aviation, than why can’t a mom from Wisconsin tackle education with the entire solution to no child left behind? I was trying to find this book to help my own girls, now ages 8 and 6, get ready for school. There is nothing like it on the market. The State Compliance Review Board for California Public Schools just approved both books into their state purchasing program as well as the State of Texas.

The idea is simple: one book for each grade that tells parents, kids and teachers everything they need for each grade. I have written, self-published and distributed, Let’s Get Ready For Kindergarten! and Let’s Get Ready For First Grade! Both books have been receiving national acclaim with winning the Adding Wisdom Award from Parent to Parent, a Silver Addy for illustrations from the American Advertising Awards and was selected by Orca Communications as one of the top new products for kids . Let’s Get Ready For First Grade! is the 2007 Teacher’s Choice Award Winner selected by teachers from Learning Magazine and seen nationwide on Better TV, Meredith’s new parenting show.

The books are now available in over 350 school districts and now will be available through the State of California’s Educational Purchasing Program as well as the State of Texas. We could change the face of education if all parents had these books prior to school.

Most schools introduce the book in the classroom and send it back and forth, from home to school so the parents and kids become familiar with the curriculum . In fact Green Bay Public schools has been using them with their incoming Kindergarten enrollment for the last three years and has seen a marked improvement in test scores. This year they wrote a grant to get 1300 books for their entire Kindergarten enrollment. I also have a foundation interested in donating 14,000 to Milwaukee Public Schools.

Most parents want to be involved in the educational process for their kids. Unfortunately, many do not know what to do. Some will be shocked at how advanced the Kindergarten curriculum has become and unfortunately, a few will realize that they should have been working with their children at home before they entered Kindergarten! Help has arrived! I am on a grass roots mission to help get parents, kids and teachers all on the same page. I believe parents are responsible for getting their kids ready for that first day of school! It’s not just knowing your name, address, phone number, and tying your shoes, it’s about taking an active role in learning. It’s simple — helping parents get involved in education at the core!! Never fear, it’s never to late to start and these simple books are working inside homes and schools across the nation. 10% of all profits are donated to literacy programs!!!
