Business & Services
Aardvark to Zucchini Press is a publisher of children's books and reading accessories, located in West Des Moines, Iowa. We are dedicated to educating children, helping them to thrive within our communities and contribute to society to the greatest extent possible. Our company was established with the development of a reading primer that uses a unique phonetic alphabet containing the majority of the phonetic sounds in the English language. Designed to cover one chapter per day, the 64 phonetic sounds are gradually introduced in a specific order that helps the child grasp the concepts quickly and acquire basic reading skills within about one month. Although the book is targeted for children ages 1 to 6, the approach may appeal to older students, including those who are learning English as a second language.
