123: Dogs in Hawaii introduces kids to ten different dog breeds while teaching them how to count from one to ten. Each page features popular locations around Hawaii with lots of color and details. The happy and playful personalities of 59 different dogs are beautifully captured and will surely feed your child’s curiosity for dogs and numbers.

We want this book to:

  • Introduce young children to early math concepts using dogs
  • Promote quality time between parents and children through reading together 
  • Make you smile

Thank you so much for your support!

Postcards: A set of 10 printed postcards using the main images of the book. Designed to share a little bit of Hawaii with your friends and family!

Book: A Limited Edition, hard cover copy of 123: Dogs in Hawaii. Each book is 8x10, with 28 full color pages. MSRP $30. If you'd like to purchase different amount of copies than what is listed in the rewards, please contact me to learn how.

Star Charm: Lianne Hirano from DaCraftyLilNinja has designed a Special Edition star charm for 123: Dogs in Hawaii! This beach themed star is complete with paw prints in the sand and available in very limited quantities.

Memory Card Game: A fun memory game for kids where you flip over cards to find the matching dog pairs. 24 cards in a set, 2.5"x2.5".

Launch Party: You are invited to celebrate the Book Launch with us in Hawaii! This dog friendly event will include cake (for both humans and dogs), a photobooth, paw-tograph signing, and more! Date and location TBD.

Mini Session + Canvas: Mini sessions are the perfect option for those who just want a few nice photos of their pet. Each session is 20 minutes long and you'll have approximately 10 unique images to order from. Pick your favorite to be displayed as a 16"x24" Gallery Wrapped Canvas! Sessions will be held on two different weekends in February. Sorry, Oahu residents only.

Photoshoot + Custom Photo Book + Digitals: We'll spend a few hours exploring your dog's favorite beach or park while capturing fun, natural images of them doing what they love most. After the session, we work on editing the very best images so you can choose your favorites for a custom Photo Book featuring your dog. Also included is 20 digital files with a print release. Sorry, Oahu residents only.

Custom Clay Pet: Lianne Hirano from DaCraftyLilNinja will make a small clay figurine of one of your pets incorporating their characteristics and details. This will be the last time she opens up her custom orders for a while, so now is your chance to create something truly unique!

Risks and challenges

The book is completed and ready for print. We have done all our homework and know exactly where we'll be printing. So production problems shouldn't be an issue (If there are any, we will let you know, of course. You'll stay updated throughout this process.)

We expect the books to be in our hands by the end February and they will ship out in March. If you do choose one of the three Deluxe Pet Packs, we can schedule your pet's photoshoot as early as February.
