Cottage Door Press Cottage Door Press publishes high-quality children's books and believes that reading is learning! www.cottagedoorpress.com
Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children's books. We were founded on the belief that every child deserves an excellent first book experience—beginning on the day they’re born. Our driving philosophy is "reading is learning." We strive to help parents understand why reading aloud to infants, babies, and toddlers is so important, and we created our simple, development-based Early Bird Learning Guide to help them on their journey.

Dinnertime storytelling makes kids voracious readers

"Dinner is a prime time for children to tell stories and to be encouraged to tell better stories."

Family meals – with lively conversation, storytelling and discussions of books and the tales they contain – feed children's literacy skills.

Did you know that babies can begin to recognize voices even before they are born? That means it's never too early to start reading to your baby! Plus it's a great way to relax and begin a "reading aloud habit" for when your little one arrives!

This little girl sounds like our kind of people too! Local libraries are a gift ❤️📚

Dear little girl who excitedly yelled "It's look at books time!" as she ran inside our building,

You're our kind of people.

Please, look at our books. Run your fingers on the spines as you walk down the aisles. Sit on the floor and read some. Clutch the stack of books you're taking home as if they're treasures. Never lose your excitement.

Love, The Library

#MeetTheCottage

MELISSA TIGGES – Director of Marketing and Partnerships 👩🏻‍💻

1. TELL US ABOUT YOUR ROLE AT COTTAGE DOOR PRESS.
🗣I am the consumer-facing "voice of the Cottage", helping position our brand and spreading the word about our beautiful, innovative books for the littlest readers. I also work to find partners who bring expertise and fill strategic roles in our business.

2. WHAT CHILDREN’S BOOK CHARACTER DESCRIBES YOUR PERSONALITY?
Eloise. I don't know if she describes my personality, but who wouldn't want to live at the Plaza Hotel?

3. WHAT THREE WORDS DESCRIBE COTTAGE DOOR PRESS?
Resourceful, female-empowering, happy 💪🏻👩🏻😃

4. WHICH CDP BOOK IS YOUR FAVORITE?
Will You Be My Sunshine. It's such a beautiful twist on a classic sentiment and the illustrations are timeless. 🐭🌞

5. IF YOU WERE AN ANIMAL, WHAT WOULD YOU BE?
🐘An African Elephant. They're known for their excellent memories and long life span. As I'm aging, I hope to have both!

6. DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE QUOTE OR LINE FROM A BOOK OR MOVIE?
"If you don't ask, the answer is ALWAYS no."

7. WHAT IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?
My oldest son and I have a pact to skydive on his 25th (golden) birthday. Luckily I have more than a decade to prepare myself. 🤢

8. TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF
I am married to my high school sweetheart 💞 and am a proud Wisconsin native 🧀, despite not having lived there since graduating from college. Our most recent move has taken us to Washington DC, where I'm forcing my kids to hit as many Smithsonian Museums and Revolutionary War battlefields as possible. I know they'll thank me for it someday! 😬
