RALEIGH, NC- June 24, 2008- With summer fast approaching and school coming to a close, kids always face the temptation of spending those months on the couch with their hand glued to the remote. This summer, instead of turning off their brain and tuning into the tube, encourage them to enjoy the warm weather with a good book. Give them the opportunity to travel through time, experience great adventure, and even learn how to become a millionaire without ever having to leave the yard. Log on to Lulu.com, the premiere digital marketplace for creative content, to fulfill yours and your child’s summer reading desires with over 380,000 titles from every genre including mystery, humor and sports.
A new book to add to your child’s summer reading list is “Tweenprenuer: The Start-up Guide to Thinking Like a Millionaire” (http://www.lulu.com/content/2471327). This guide encourages “tweens” (ages 8-12) to channel their creativity and talents as a way to make some cash. Published on Lulu.com, author Mariel Linda Perry wants to put this book into as many little hands as possible in hopes that “their world would be a better, fuller and richer place.”
Her book was inspired by her early days as a broke but enterprising kid who created hair accessories and altered clothes to make a little extra money. The teacher and published author credits her success to those early endeavors. “That motivation I had at an early age has brought me to where I am today,” says Perry.
Of course, reading isn’t the only activity that can get your child’s creative juices flowing. Help them use Lulu.com to tell their own story. That’s what Lulu author Matthew Reade did. At just 11 years old he wrote his first novel “John: Son of a Commander” (http://www.lulu.com/content/921114 ) and published it on Lulu. Reade has already published his second book and, in no time, your child can too.
On the other hand, nothing says summer like a spectacular vacation, so make this year’s unforgettable. Grab your digital camera and create a photo book using Lulu’s easy-to-use tools to make those moments last. You could even enlist the help of the entire family and turn your summer project into a group effort.
So whether you, or your child are looking to read, write, or create something fabulous this summer, Lulu.com has something for the whole family.
