PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A Chester County entrepreneur is providing children with an escape from technology by encouraging them to use their imagination and then publishing the results.

Dana Hurley (photo) is giving kids the opportunity to put their ideas on a shelf. Her new business, “The Little Publisher”, gives kids a first hand look at what it takes to publish a book, from imagination to creation.

Hurley says this is an opportunity to move kids away from the computer screen and introduce them to print.

“Technology is good but I really want to bring them back to the roots; give them a childhood, you know. Let them use their imagination, really play with it a little bit, instead of having something that’s already had their imagination structured for them.”

Hurley wants to give kids an exciting, hands-on educational experience by allowing them to express their creativity through the art of bookmaking.

Hurley will be at the Malvern Blooms Festival on Sunday to kick off the summer season, which will include summer camp programs, birthday parties and themed events.
