I have been a professional literary agent for twenty-eight years. I have represented numerous books marketed toward children learning to read, including the "Madeline" series by Ludwig Belmelans and the "Black Stallion" series by Walter Farley; and for twelve years I served as an agent for the works of Dr. Suess, which are acknowledged to have revolutionized the teaching of reading in contemporary America. I offer this to substantiate that I am knowledgeable and have familiarity with the childrenís market and the importance of reading development within that market.
Bumpybooks is the first new product Iíve encountered that I think might have the capacity to be a genuine, long-term phenomenon in the childrenís reading development world. I consider it to be an authentically revolutionary concept and that it has great value in the publishing, merchandising and education fields.
Bumpybooks exemplifies the multisensory approach that is effective with
all students who are learning to read, especially those with dyslexia.

bumpybooks would be extremely useful to Occupational Therapists to enhance
the tactile system and improve hand-eye coordination. It would also assist
with visual impairment (sterognosis ) to strengthen the ability to recognize
through touch when vision is occluded. It could also be used with children
and adults who have sensory deprivation and need to strengthen their tactile
input to gain information.
