Children's Book Author A. J. Cosmo Leads The Way In Digital Books That Engage Kids And Teach Valuable Life Lessons

While many people believe digital book formats are not appropriate for young children, the studies may suggest otherwise. The popularity of A. J. Cosmo's Kindle books for kids demonstrate that the key is getting kids interested in reading, regardless of format

A recent article by Jeremy Greenfield on The Street website entitled 'Digital Books Really Aren't Turning Your Kids' Brains to Mush' presented some enlightening facts about the value of e-books for kids.

According to 'The ABC's of Kids & E-Reading, (a study from Play Science and Digital Book World), digital reading trends are increasing. According to the study, two-thirds of kids two to 13 read or are read from digital books. Some people delight in the news while others bemoan the perceived loss of 'old-school' print formats. Regardless of the hype, hearsay or endless bickering about print versus digital, the importance of early reading skill development, no matter the format, is of utmost urgency.

A. J. Cosmo's digital children's books are wildly successful. He is the author and illustrator of over forty children's books for the Amazon Kindle, including the best selling 'The Monster That Ate My Socks', which spent almost two years at the top of the Monster category and in the top 500 books overall. To satisfy the demand in both publishing formats, 'The Monster That Ate My Socks' is the first legitimately printed book from Thought Bubble Publishing, the newly incorporated self-publishing imprint that Cosmo formed in 2014.

"My mission," A.J. stated, "is to improve the quality of life for kids and adults by teaching important lessons, thus laying the foundation for future success in life."

All of Cosmo's stories are carefully crafted to help parents teach their children simple everyday lessons in an easy to understand manner. By artfully marrying beautiful illustrations and language, children are challenged to explore his magical worlds. Written for the transitional reader, A.J.'s stories allow children to develop and master a new level of reading.

"Format is a matter of personal preference," Cosmo concluded, "and it doesn't matter which format parents and educators prefer. What is important is that the child connects with the material and grows as a reader."
