Story Idea:
May 8, 2013, MIDVALE, UT, USA - Parents and teachers seeking more racially-diverse educational
books for children have new options—and more places to find them. This month Premio Publishing
& Gozo Books has made its multicultural activity and language books available at more than 75
libraries and bookmobiles in the West.

The books feature children of black, white, Asian, Hispanic and mixed races, and come with
finding or counting activities, online secrets and even recipes. Surprise twists, vivid images and
humor hold student attention and make them repeat readers. Hundreds of the nationally-lauded
English and Spanish books (with pronunciation guide), activity mysteries, ebooks and non-fiction
books on immigrants have also been donated around the world.

The publisher has also increased the number of web sites that offer its diverse books and ebooks
internationally--including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Nook, Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Sony, Diesel,
Smashwords and Etsy. Premiobooks.com offers a free geography ebook: It Ain’t Flat: A
Memorizable Book of Countries meant to be read aloud. They plan to release interactive book apps
later this year.

Premio Publishing’s multicultural books have been praised by School Library Journal, the Horn
Book blog, ForeWord Reviews and others. While their educational children’s books may be ordered
via Baker & Taylor, Brodart, Follett Library Resources/BWI Title Wave, Ingram, Amazon and
others, the publisher will continue to donate books to US libraries and charities. Libraries that did
not receive a free bilingual book with pronunciation guide may contact the publisher while
quantities last.
