Web-publishing project


 Description and History :

The „ Web publishing project“ began in the second half of 2001 and its end has not yet been determined. It works with 27 Step by Step organizations that are based mainly in Central and Eastern Europe, Asia and other countries to create multicultural literature for children. The results of a two-year-long effort are 20 children’s books translated into 27 languages; the works of Czech authors are three stories and one illustration. These books support the development of early reading for children aged 3 to 7 years and could be used as excellent tools for reading instruction (the global method, for example). They could help with foreign language instruction in preschools. Due to their variety, they could help develop multiculture from an early age. At this moment, they are located only on the web and are waiting for their publisher.

Project Goals:

The primary goal of the project is cooperation, communication and the exchange of experiences of Step by Step organizations from all countries during the creation of literature that is multicultural, high in quality and age appropriate.

The further goal is the development of early reading of children aged 3 to 7 years and the support of multiculture for children through books for young readers from the whole world. Our aim is also the development and nurturing of the children’s literature market.

Targeted Group :

The project is intended for Czech story creators and everyone who knows how to draw.
