About this project
UPDATE: to clarify the idea - the illustration in each page is missing the hero, and when the child places the doll in the right place (a small illustration will give a suggestion where that is) the story is "complete"
We want to transform how children's books are read !
Reading a book to your child with the patent-pending My-Doll-Book series is an experience you will never forget!
Rather than being a passive listener, with these books the child takes part in making and completing the story, bringing to life the adventures of Guy, our book series hero, as hero and child learn about values such as patience, friendship, respectfulness and being responsible.
Every reading is different, with endless room for surprises, improvisation and play. By animating the doll and completing the picture in each page, your child becomes the master of Guy’s world, role playing Guy, and teamwork with you to bring the story to life. Our book series also help to improve the child's comprehension and imagination skills.
Above all, reading our My-Doll-Book is FUN.
You can use our doll, or the child's favorite doll as the main hero, promoting stronger emotional connection between your child and the story. The books are designed for boys and girls ages 3 to 7.
With your support, we plan to release the first three books in the series "Guy finds a butterfly", "Guy is making cupcakes" and "Guy visits his grandparents". We have storylines and sketches for all three books, and made a full-size version of the first book, used in the video. With your support we plan to pay for professional illustrations, art editing, printing and shipment (to backers $25 and over).
Thank you for supporting Guy!
Father to 3 kids between 7 and 2 year old, I spent many hours of reading books to my own children. These My-Doll-Book series is (yet) another shared creation with my wife, Pazit, who also made the draft drawings. Pazit is a mom and an educator, with many years of K-12 teaching experience. We know it is easier to let our kids watch TV, but still we insist on balancing that with reading books. This My-Doll-Book series were invented to add a play and fun element to book reading. We enjoy reading these books to our own kids, they love it, and we are sure yours will love it too!
