“With the products now offered by Lulu Junior, children can create and share their imaginative stories while honing in their communication skills,” said Ginny Gomez, chief marketing officer at Lulu. “Writing and publishing a book is an accomplishment for anyone, especially a young writer as they build their confidence as a story-teller and author. With Lulu Junior, we help children unlock their inner creator and realize their potential as an author and artist. Plus, with nearly 100,000 children’s books available on Lulu.com, many written by children, Lulu Junior is the ideal destination for young readers and writers alike.”
Lulu Junior also offers children an easy way to create their own wall art, showcasing your child’s artistic creations of art, words and photos by displaying them on high quality canvas. With these options, parents can cherish their child’s works and proudly share their accomplishments with friends and family.
