Welcome to Riomo Books! I’m Tate.

 

Come sit down on the reading rug

… if your virtual knees will allow …

and together let’s help kids love learning to read.

It’s amazing and hard and rewarding and … and … and … being a parent or teacher of little ones!

When you think of everything those crucial roles entail, what do you think of?

One day, as I thought about everything that’s wrapped up in being a parent/teacher, this is what came to mind:

  • I will be including your wonderful books in the preschool program this year.
    ~ Tracey A. - Preschool Teacher, London
  • These are perfect for kids who are not really ready for full books yet. I love the pictures--I like that they are simple but engaging. A lot of CVC books that we have at school are all black and white, which is okay, but color pictures are more enticing. I also think parents will like them because they are not boring. They are funny!
    ~ Erica D. - Teacher, Pre-K (Reception), London

These very short books help children gain confidence that they can “Read It On My Own.” That’s where the RIOMO legacy lives!
