WHY THIS BOOK IS IMPORTANT
If you're like me you enjoy reading, but may not feel a strong connection to the written word. However, ideas that are represented visually through drawings or photographs instantly connect with our brains. We understand the world through shape, line, color, and pattern. We're visual learners! And this book is for us! It's also personal - a gift for my family.
I want LEARN YOUR LETTERS to be the best alphabet book you have ever seen and I want it to be better than a book you'd buy in a store. In order to keep the message clear and direct I've worked tirelessly to keep this book simple. In today's world of constant overstimulation, LEARN YOUR LETTERS will keep your attention focused. Plus, simple ideas have the power to transcend age, ability, gender, race, culture, and even time.
LEARN YOUR LETTERS is categorized under "Children's Books," but is for a much wider audience. Anyone who appreciates typography, drop caps, logos, bright colors and STUFF will love this book. Children and adults alike will enjoy revisiting these images time and time again while recognizing new ideas in familiar things. If you have an imagination, your inner child and outer adult will love this letter book.
LEARN YOUR LETTERS BOOK
The downloadable coloring book will be a powerful tool as your child advances from reading letters, to writing and drawing them. They can create their own versions in any way they choose, directly below these illustrations. Now your child is learning in multiple ways which is important for truly owning the information.
THE POSTER - 22" x 19"
Teachers that use the "word per week" method will be happy to know that each square on the poster is the size of your average post-it note. Which means you can cover the poster up and then reveal each letter as you learn. Advent-Calendar style!!
Why a board book? Because board books are FUN! They feel more like a toy than a book. They are stronger, water-resistant, the pages are easier to turn, and you can't get paper cuts!

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk is delivering all the rewards both at a high level and in a timely fashion. I will be working with PrintNinja for both my printing and distribution. They have told me once I place the order it will take 9 weeks to ship to their warehouse outside of Chicago. After that it may take another 1-2 weeks to ship to backers around the world. This is straight from PrintNinja's website:
"...Shipping time will vary based on weather conditions, port and boat capacity, labor fluctuations, customs approval and other factors."
