Title: The Smart Home
Subtitle: The Natural Way to Educate through Play
Written by: Shannon Pretorius M.Ed
For the back cover:
"This is a book about the everyday routines and rituals that your family engages in and how you can inject educational vocabulary, activities, mindset, and play into those routines naturally, with little or no cost.
I wrote this book because I am a working mother and an elementary school teacher and I understand the precious value of your time with your family. As a mother, I want to make sure that I give my child the experiences that will help her grow, learn, and thrive in life, school, and every journey in which she partakes. As a teacher, I want my child to feel comfortable and enjoy the learning process that will be an ongoing part of her life. I feel that the more I can do with her naturally at home, the more she will embrace the idea of lifelong learning and the easier it will be for her."
I am picturing a simple, clean cover. Feel free to play with color but not too overwhelming overall. Images are great. Something related to kids or play would be appropriate. Make it fun but professional to appeal to parents of all backgrounds. I don't want this to look like a school book or a text book because it is not one.
Book size is 6"x9". (About 130 pages) Soft cover.
I am publishing with Amazon.
