What is Early Moments?

Early Moments is actually a new name for an old friend. We’ve been publishing children’s books and operating book clubs for more than 45 years. During that time, we’ve constantly expanded our selection and improved our clubs in response to parents and educators. Today, our portfolio includes many well-known programs and authors.

Early Moments Book Clubs:

In 2008, we were purchased by a major publisher of children’s book clubs in Europe, and we gave ourselves a new name that more accurately reflects our mission. We chose Early Moments because we sincerely believe that the moments you spend reading with your children early on—and it’s never too early—are vitally important. That’s why we chose as our slogan: Sharing the Gift of Reading.

Reading is one of the most precious gifts you can give your child. When you share the gift of reading, you’re helping promote:

  • Expanded vocabulary and writing skills
  • Healthy social and emotional development
  • Longer attention spans, promoting better retention of information in school
  • Enhanced imaginative and critical thinking skills
  • A sense of closeness and intimacy between parent and child
  • Enhanced memory and higher levels of concentration

Early Moments can help by providing you and your child with books that are always high-quality, whether they’re classics like Dr. Seuss™ or new titles, and that are developmentally suited to the age of your child. In other words, you’ll always get the right book at the right time. Equally important, our books are fun! Bright colors, engaging illustrations, and clever wordplay make them books your child will want to read over and over again.

We’re excited about our mission at Early Moments. And we’re excited about this Web site. We hope you’ll visit it often and that it will be a real resource for you, giving you tips and advice on how to make reading an everyday gift you share with your child.
