Aimed at children 4-8 years old, this book is told by a father who spent a summer at home with his seven year old.

About this project

When You Were Seven is a story aimed at 4-8 year olds.  I was inspired to write it after spending a summer at home with my seven-year old twin daughters.  I was able to observe their changes as they grew and explored and played.  I wrote the book to remember that time, but I think it will transcend to all parents of small children.

The purpose of Kickstarter is to raise funds to hire an artist to render the illustrations for the book.  I envision the art to be soft, evoking a dream, and hope to have it rendered in watercolors or soft pastels.  Also looking for funding for a proper publicity campaign. 

UPDATE:  Have found an artist named Denise Fulton who creates great watercolor images.  See a few samples below:
