We made it, we made it!! --Again!!
We did it again! With a mere 4 hours left we made our second goal and now the ebook of the second book will be FREE to almost all 258 of you backers!
I am just overwhelmed at your support — not just in money but in sharing it with your friends, family and colleagues. I have learned so much by crowd-source funding this book that will make it better. The biggest piece is that children with visual impairments — not just babies — will love the high contrast images. To that end, I will likely change the title from Dark & Light: A love story for babies to Dark & Light: A love story in black and white.
But I wouldn't have been able to change the title to anything if it wasn't going to be a book! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this project a reality — two times over — and for helping my family start a new chapter in our lives. We feel truly blessed — which is not something I imagined being able to say two years ago.
Thank you for sharing your love, compassion and excitement!

Wow. OK, you can have the ORIGINAL storyboard that I created when I first thought of this book. It's not fancy, but imagine how much Margaret Wise Brown's notes for Goodnight Moon would be worth today? Plus all the above swag.Estimated delivery:
