About this project
ANGELS I HAVE KNOWN has been a life long dream of mine to share angels with children all over the world. I will start with two children's books written and illustrated by me, Chris Padovano. I have illustrated over 55 children's books for authors all over the world (most still in print), but now it is time for me to tell MY stories!
The first one, ANGEL IN THE BACK SEAT is about a little girl who complains every Sunday about going to church, until an Angel appears in the back seat of the car and sets her straight.
ANGELS ON CLOUD NINE is a book for all families that have lost a child at too early an age. It tells a joyous story of where little kids go and how glorious it is to be an angel. It takes a serious subject and tells the story in a light hearted and happy way.
All the angels that appear in my books are from all ethnic backgrounds, and all types of kids, from heavyset kids to kids who wear glasses, to shy kids, to handicapped kids,
I plan on publishing coloring books, games, websites and everything else celebrating Angels in a child's world
All books will be published in November, in time for Christmas gift giving!
Risks and challenges
I have been illustrating Children's books for authors all over the world for years. I currently have over 55 children's books in print (you can google me ). My work ethic and energy will reduce all risks that come with publishing Children's Books. I have the knowledge and know-How to market these books and this concept to the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
