I’m so excited to share this with you. For the past three years, a friend (Kristyn Dors) and I have been working on a children’s book called, “I Love My Amazing Body.” We finished it this spring and have a Kickstarter going on until July 15th for hard cover copies. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Kickstarter, it is a crowdfunding website for creative projects. Our Kickstarter is specifically for first-edition hard cover copies of the book.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
I Love My Amazing Body is a children’s book encouraging confidence and body appreciation.
The book is about a spunky little girl named Jackie. Jackie takes the reader through each body part describing all the things she loves to do with her amazing body. With her fingers she loves to play piano. With her hips she loves to hula hoop. With her arms she loves to hug her dog. With her legs she loves to run.
Each page also includes an interactive question to engage your child and get them thinking and moving. How do you move your shoulders when you swim? What do you love to draw? Can you sit with your legs crisscross applesauce. The book is written in beautiful rhyming verse by Jocelyn and illustrated in watercolor pencil by Kristyn.
We want to change the dialogue we have with ourselves about our bodies starting at a young age. This book will help instill a sense of confidence in children with the understanding that our bodies truly are amazing in all they can do!
ABOUT THE KICKSTARTER:
We’ve been working on this book for three years now and we’re so excited that we’re finally ready for release!
We’d love to offer a limited edition hardcover version of the book. Our goal is to raise enough to print 100 books. We’ve also included a small budget for art prints as well as marketing so we can reach as many people as possible.
