SAN FRANCISCO, July 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Juno Company, one of the country's most innovative children's media companies creating products that encourage music appreciation in young children, has announced the launch of its publishing line, beginning with the release of Juno's Musical ABCs board book. Well-known actress, author and model, Brooke Shields, lends her voice for the audio narration of this title, as well as three upcoming storybook CDs. As with all Juno Baby products these storybook CDs are part of The One For All Program. For every Juno Baby product sold, the company donates a special music education DVD to a child in need. Juno Baby's motto is "Buy One. Give One."

Juno's Musical ABCs board book takes children on a lyrical journey through the alphabet as they learn the letters one by one, including "A is for applause" and "W is for waltz."  All about music, this board book will delight audiences young and old with its rhymes, colorful images of beloved Juno characters and introduction to various musical elements. For a limited time only, with the purchase of the new Juno's Musical ABCs board book, consumers can register to download for free the audio version from JunoBaby.com, narrated by Brooke Shields.

"It's our objective to lead the children's media industry by putting only the highest quality products into the marketplace and making them accessible to children from all walks of life," said Barrett Cohn, CEO of Juno Baby, Inc. "And I am thrilled that Brooke Shields, a great actress and doting mom herself, is lending her voice to help bring our stories to life in the recording of the first books from the Juno Baby publishing line."

"I am so excited to be the narrator of some of the wonderful Juno Baby books," said Brooke Shields.  I am a true believer in the power of music and the importance of bringing it into a child's life at an early age. "I look forward to giving these inspirational and charming stories a voice and becoming a part of something that will enhance creativity in young minds."

Juno Baby's Emmy Award-winning DVDs are part of a larger line of children's products, which seek to inspire a lifelong love of music in children from 12 months to five years of age.  Founder, mom and composer Belinda Takahashi's original music is performed by live orchestral musicians and paired with a cast of endearing puppet characters created and performed by the talented hands behind some of your favorite Muppet and Sesame Street characters*. Juno Baby is helping to inspire and nurture the minds of children through beautiful music.

Like all Juno products, the book line is part of the Juno Baby One For All Program. For every Juno Baby product purchased, the company donates a very special music education DVD to a child in need.  With the strong belief that beautiful music enriches lives, and the importance of instilling the value of giving to those less fortunate, Juno Baby has partnered with the National Head Start Association (NHSA.org) with the mission to bring beautiful, orchestral music to children in the U.S., with ultimate goal of giving 1 million very special music education DVDs to children in need.
