ABOUT THE BOOK
Just on the edge of the earth, tucked between the sea and the wood, is a little town called Havenville. Even on its driest days, Havenville is still, with only the most infrequent of exceptions, the rainiest village in the world. In this town, down the winding street and up the steepest hill, lives a little boy named Simon. Among the usual hobbies of 7 year old boys (basketball, leaping from the swing at its highest point, eating too many cookies, etc.), Simon collects something rare and beautiful.
Simon collects sunshine.
WHY THE WORLD NEEDS THIS BOOK
Now YOU can join Simon and his little red wagon on this adventure. With your help, we will create a 40 page wordless picture book, illustrating Simon’s journey to bring sunshine to the world. This book will teach young and old alike of the value each of us has, and will remind us that we have the power to be kind, share love, and change lives.
By supporting this project, YOU will be spreading the sunshine too! With your help, we will be able to raise funds to print this book and share the message. And, in a special effort to illustrate Simon's story in real-world context, after the book is printed, a large portion of the proceeds from book sales will be going to Make-A-Wish Idaho(c) to help the organization make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
This is your chance. Share the light. Be the light.
