MKVB is happy to welcome Rock Me! USA as our newest advertiser.
Rock Me! provides functional, comfortable, and fashionable apparel that are free of closures that make dressing and changing children difficult. The principle roles are to pursue the best possible service and focus on making customers satisfied by serving top of the line service, quality, and value.
Anna and Nancy, college friends, received degrees in Fashion Merchandising from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1998. Since college, they both gained valuable knowledge in the fashion industry. Eventually, the two became mothers and soon wondered why no one had thought outside the box and modernized the classic romper. Who had time for all those snaps? Clearly something had to be done.
Finally in 2009, they combined forces to create their solution. Our daring duo decided to channel their mutual frustration with snaps, Velcro, and applique farm animals for the greater good by applying their knowledge of the fashion industry to bring the typical children's romper' into the 21st century. Many ideas, prototypes, and production samples later, Rock Me! was born. Rock Me! is the modern solution for dressing your little bundle of joy with style and ease. Bid a fond farewell to those farm animals and good riddance to snaps forever!
We are proud to say that Rock Me! is completely designed, sourced, and manufactured in the USA!

When you are reading with your child, ask them about what connections they are making with their book. This helps them deepen their understanding of the book because they are activating prior knowledge. Children are more likely to become a lover of reading if they are involved in the books. There are three types of connections:
1. Text to Self: when something in the book makes you think about your own life. “When _____ happened in the book it reminded me of when _____ happened to me.”
