Such a great list of books for Valentine's Day from Book Nerd Mommy!

February is one of my favorite times of year.  Growing up that wasn’t always the case.  As a kid I associated Valentine’s Day with just one day of the month and although it was wonderful the rest of the month felt dreary to me.  Then, as I got older, I associated Valentine’s Day with couple...

What to do when your child needs a nap but won’t take one

"Have a relaxing pre-nap routine to cue your child that naptime is here and help him wind down and relax." Our Mindful Moments at Bedtime book is a great way to relax before nap time!

Daytime naps might last just a few short hours, but they can affect all 24 hours of a child’s day. Naps can improve a child’s mood and reduce fussiness, crying, whining and tantrums. Studies show that children who nap daily also get sick less often, grow taller and are less likely to be obese wh...

This is your child's brain on books: Scans show benefit of reading vs. screen time

"Taking away screens and reading to our children during the formative years of birth to age 5 boosts brain development. We all know that's true, but now science can convince us with startling images."

Scans of preschoolers' brains show a stark difference in brain development when read to by a parent as compared to when they are playing on screens alone, studies show.

Our Story

We Believe That Reading Is Learning

From our founding in 2014, Cottage Door Press has believed that every child deserves an excellent first book experience — beginning on the day they’re born.

Reading is learning has been our driving philosophy, and we strive to help grown-ups understand why reading aloud to children from birth is so important.

• It encourages communication. • It introduces fundamental concepts. • It builds vocabulary and memory. • It fosters social and emotional development.

We Educate and Entertain to Encourage Read-Together Time

We believe that educating and entertaining both children and their grown-ups will encourage more read-together time. We also believe in “reading up” to children — we respect them, and choose artwork and language that interests, informs, and stretches their growing minds. We are on top of current trends and publish books across multiple hot formats and content areas. We also form strategic partnerships, both with targeted retailers and high-quality licensors, to offer the best programs to the families that bring our books into their homes.

We Help With Developmentally Appropriate Book Selection

To help grown-ups pick out age-appropriate titles and understand which skills they’re reinforcing when they read a Cottage Door book to their little one, each of our books features a removable sticker on the front cover that corresponds to our Early Bird Learning Guide — a system based on widely accepted milestones of childhood development.

We Support Early Literacy Organizations

To reach little ones beyond our scope, we support organizations that foster early literacy and book ownership, like Bernie’s Book Bank, Read Aloud 15 Minutes, and 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.

We Believe Books Are Special

Ultimately, we believe in the special bond between children and their books, so every time a parent and child open a Cottage Door book, they will be welcomed inside with warmth and whimsy, imagination and inspiration, quality and care. We want our beautifully illustrated books to provide interactive opportunities for parents, grandparents, and loved ones to share special moments with the littles in their lives!
