Ready, Set, Learn! School Zone Launches Little Get Ready! Books

Grand Haven, MI (March 4, 2011) – There’s nothing kids like better than being busy, but it doesn’t mean that parents are always prepared with a fun, fast educational activity. Thankfully, School Zone Publishing has the ideal answer to complaints such as “I’m bored!” and “Are we there yet?”—the new Little Get Ready! book collection provides big learning in a small format that requires no charger or batteries.

“Digital learning apps are exciting and important, but pencil-and-paper experience remains vital,” says Jonathan Hoffman, President and CEO of School Zone.” He adds, “Our new Little Get Ready! books are a terrific ‘unplugged’ supplement. With this series, children can practice reading and math skills anywhere, anytime. The books fit easily into a backpack or purse.”
