 On TV today! 

My daughter and I were on the local news today! It was our first live interview about the book. It was really fun and exciting. We got a tour of the studio afterward.

Update: 2 Stretch Goals! 

Hi everyone! We were surprised and excited to meet and exceed our initial goal so quickly! As a teacher and mom, children and reading are both passions of mine. Here are some "stretch goals" that will benefit schools and the MN Dental Foundation, as well as netting some additional fun rewards for our current supporters. What a great opportunity to get our book into the hands of kids!

Stretch Goals:

 

**All stretch goals and extra goodies will only be available during this campaign. Since your credit card will not be billed until the end of the campaign, you can change pledge tiers and pledge amounts until that date!

Please help us by continuing to share this campaign with family, friends, and anyone else who is passionate about children, reading and dental health!

Thank you for helping to get our book into the hands of children!

About the book:  

     Cami Kangaroo loves sweets. She can't stop thinking about them. Even after Mommy catches her locked in the playroom eating out of a bucket of ice cream, she still finds ways to sneak them. What could possibly go wrong? Based on true-life stories of the author's own daughter Cami, this book will have you and your children laughing, as well as learning a valuable lesson.

The Story Behind the Story:

      Hi! My name is Stacy C. Bauer. I am a wife, mother and teacher. I have always loved writing and have been sharing funny stories about my own children for years. Last year, I took a leave from my career as a teacher and decided to write this book. This book is based on my daughter Cami and her quest to sneak and eat every treat she could get her hands on. It also tells of the consequences she faced as a result of that. 

     I wrote this book for my daughter. I wrote this book to make people laugh. I wrote this book to encourage children to take care of their teeth. I wrote this book because it's been my dream for a long time and last year, I finally decided to do something about it. My family and I are so grateful for your interest and support!

Risks and challenges

Your credit card won't get charged unless I reach my goal. Should I reach my goal, the only possible problems that could arise would be a delay in the deliverables. All of my backers will receive their rewards at the giving level that they chose. Thank you so much for your help! xo
