FourBears - Customized Children’s Books About Your Family

$22,033

355

We create beautifully illustrated children’s books that are perfectly personalized for your family. Family stories can finally be fun for kids! We’ve created books that children will LOVE, including dynamic content and exquisite illustrations to capture the attention of our youngest readers! This will become a favorite in your storybook collection.

  

 

1. Mad Lib - Provide fun facts about the family member of your choosing. 

2. Auto Magic - We’ll create your book based on the information you provide us with. 

3. Print & Ship - Your book will be bound and sent to you in an heirloom storybook for happy children!

No two books will ever be the same!

 

Children need better bedtime stories! The characters in your children's books are remembered for a lifetime. These are fundamental moments in their development. Allow their hero and favorite storybook character to be a grandpa who started his own shoe shop, or a grandmother who raised six children solo. Your children will grow to appreciate their family story and develop what scholars call an "intergenerational self". Academic research shows that children who know the stories of their family have a stronger sense of identity and a better understanding of who they are in the world.

 

 

Helping children learn their family stories can be really hard. We are making it fun and memorable for you, and your kids!

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re on a mission to help others understand their story by knowing of their forebears! Our platform allows families to create unique children’s books about their family members. Help children discover where they’ve come from, by sharing their rich family legacy! We make it easy to commemorate the life of loved ones and cherish their stories forever.

 

  

  

 

 

 

   

 

 

   

 

 

   

Return Policy: Since we make custom books, we do not allow for returns on books we've already made. If we made a mistake in your book we will be happy to discuss creating a new book for you at no charge.

We are passionate about creating amazing products and Kickstarter is a way for us to launch our brand. As you've read Kickstarter isn't a store and rewards are a thanks for supporting the project. Your pledge means so much and we take it very seriously so that we can build a fantastic product.

Customs: We can not mark any rewards as a gift. It is illegal to do so. Import duties and taxes are not included in our reward levels. These charges vary by country and are completely out of our control. We are shipping our books all over the world and it is impossible for us to build the various customs charges into the reward level through Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

We already have relationships with a printer, an illustrator, and a software tool and have delivered several books to customers. The biggest risk is how fast we can deliver batches after the holiday special as that largely depends on how many orders we receive.
