About Us

Cherry Blossom Press introduces very young children to the building blocks of literacy. The relatable stories incorporate age-appropriate, familiar themes and topics supported by bright illustrations and colorful photography. These fun-filled books foster a lifelong love of learning.

ENGAGING SERIES FOR EARLY READERS

  • Written at both “A” and “B” reading levels, books are based on whole language literacy, phonics, repetition, and sight word learning
  • Photos or illustrations follow text exactly to aid in reader inference and comprehension
  • Text in phonics-based books uses short words with short vowel sounds and simple consonant combinations

“Cherry Blossom Books are written for the earliest readers. The colorful illustrations and engaging stories support beginning reading skills using short vowel, single syllable words. The word list and full text at the end of the book assist with word study and timed readings.”
— Cecilia Minden, Ph.D., literacy consultant, and former director of the Language and Literacy program at Harvard Graduate School of Education
