Stinky Stardust Feet gives kids and parents an opportunity to discuss science, religion, traditions, and any questions about the universe around them. (And to do so in a lighthearted manner– the book is funny!)
Judas has to open his mind to figure out and understand the significance of personal hygiene. He goes on to discover why exactly his feet stink, and how he can use his method to solve future problems.
The book touches on The Big Bang, evolution, natural selection, the scientific method, and the importance of clean feet! What more could you want in a book?
The takeaway is for kids to not believe everything they hear. This is especially important today, when so many stories are passed on as exaggerated truths. This is also the beauty behind science. It’s unbiased. We shouldn’t take so and so’s word for it because they are popular or powerful. Look for evidence, test your hypothesis, and then come to your conclusion. We want to encourage kids to think outside the box and to question authority.
In a time when people are constantly divided, it's important to remind the next generation how alike we truly are. We all share an important history, embrace it! (For future sake)
Originally, I thought I could slap some words on a page and call it a book. Then I learned. I decided to use Kickstarter because self-publishing is expensive. I have to sell a large quantity of books to balance production costs. If I can raise enough to cover my startup costs... I may hope to break even, yahoo!
Take a look at the R E W A R D S (can you tell I like saying "plus"?)
Some (not all) expenses include: editor ($150), illustrator ($2000+), copy right ($350), printer ($500 per 100 copies), shipping ($500 per 100 copies, domestic), marketing and advertising (to be endured).
Thank you for supporting science advocacy and unity for all things earth!
Risks and challenges
There may be delays in printing or shipping, but since the book is headed towards completion, any delay should be minimal. If you chose the "Meet the Author" reward, know that it is dependent on weather/hurricane season. We will work around it. Also, we are certified and licensed professionals. So any sailing or exploring will be top-notch.
For European backers, it may take until May for you to receive the book. Patience, my friends!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
