In the Tree Top: Children's Book

$20,567

This book is a retelling and transformation of the lyrics to Rock-a-Bye- Baby...

Here are some of the images and lyrics from the book:

When the bough breaks, I'll be right there
And I will catch you as you fall through the air...

 Rock-a-bye Baby, here in my arms,
Where I will keep you safe from all harm...

Green leaves and flowers so you can peek,
All nature calls you to play hide and seek.

ROOTS AND BRANCHES... 

This book has deep roots and long branches…. the Rock-a-Bye Baby lullaby is certainly rooted in our collective consciousness. Its origin is debatable, but it's agreed that it likely dates from the 1600s or 1700s. One conjecture is that it was written by an 18th-century English immigrant in the US who observed Native American mothers suspending birch-bark cradles from the branches of trees, letting the wind gently rock their babies to sleep. 

 Our project's roots date from the 1990s when Candide sang the traditional lullaby to her baby and thought... "What a bummer! The baby falls and that's it!" So she added verses of her own. The mother catches and cradles her baby, the child grows a little older, and the song ends on a lovely triumphant note. Friends suggested she turn her lyrics into a book for children. Years later, Candide happened upon Steve Emery's website and his dreamlike, soulful, fanciful watercolors with animals hidden in landscapes. She knew immediately that he would be the perfect illustrator for the book she had long been picturing in her mind. He agreed to do the paintings as an act of faith in a stranger. 

The tree branched further when we approached singer/songwriter Laurelyn Dossett to ask if she would sing and record Candide’s new lullaby. In another act of faith, she, too, agreed.

Laurelyn said that much of her career stems from the act of singing lullabies to daughters. She commented: "I really do believe that whatever strength I may have as a singer and a writer is a result of my time as a lullaby singer. A specific mother of my specific children, and that specificity is what connects to the universal. Lullabies--audible, visual, both--are important and serious work."

We couldn't agree more. With your help, In the Tree Top: A New Lullaby will be published in September as a full-color, 32- page book with a link to download the song. There will be a signed and numbered limited edition; a signed edition; an unsigned edition; and two e-book versions. All will be memorable books that parents or grandparents can read (or sing!) to children in their early years. Later, children can sit with the book themselves, read the lyrics and discover the animals magically hidden in the illustrations. (There will be a complete listing in the back of the book, just in case parent or child needs a little help.)

This is a serious project that has been a collaboration of love and faith, and we are now turning to the online community for support. 

WHAT DO WE NEED THESE FUNDS FOR? GOOD QUESTION!

Here are our costs: book design; printing and shipping the book; creating two e-book versions (iBook and Kindle); creating a website; recording session for the lullaby for the book's download; modest advertising and marketing; and fulfillment of all the Rewards for our backers. We promise to be responsible and respectful with the funds our backers have pledged. 

A percentage of proceeds will go to animal rescue and child abuse prevention non-profits. 

If we make our goal, we will be able to distribute copies of this book to public libraries in North Carolina. If we exceed our goal by $1000 or more we'll be able to give copies to children's hospitals in North Carolina.

Please look at the Rewards to see how you might help us, and what you will receive as our thanks. For example, here are the two designed bookmarks, one example of the whimsical computer wallpaper that go with all the rewards, and one of the paintings by Steve Emery that's available at the $500 level. Bookmarks on top, then "wallpaper," then one of the paintings...

Risks and challenges

We have hired a professional (http://goosepenpress.com) to design our book. We will send all promised rewards as soon as they are produced. We know the book and the art prints will definitely be ready by November. Certain levels of support include Laurelyn's upcoming (and as yet to-be-named) album of lullabies. The CD has a less certain completion date, but we will get it to eligible supporters if not by November, then as soon as it's finished. You'll be the FIRST to receive it.
