Karen Neuburger: Marketing to Moms Awareness Program

Campaign Objectives

Coordinate and raise awareness for Karen Neuburger Books at Bedtime holiday campaign designed to promote children’s literacy and holiday-themed collection of Karen Neuburger pajamas.

Implementation of Campaign

  • Created “cookies and milk” pajama party events with Nordstrom in multiple U.S. markets to promote holiday-themed collection of Karen Neuburger mouse-print pajamas inspired by illustrations from the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff. Nordstrom pajama parties were hosted by Laura Numeroff.
  • To spotlight the need for increased children’s literacy development in the U.S., a national family reading survey was conducted that revealed nearly 46% of U.S. parents were reading less to their children at bedtime than their own parents read to them. Survey results were featured in national publications, including USA Today.
  • Additional program elements included media outreach, conducting book readings by Laura Numeroff at local schools and hospitals, and an influencer outreach program.
