UPDATE: I'm Funded!!! And I still have time left! 

Thank you everyone who has backed and shared this campaign!!! If i'm able to go beyond my goal I will be using some of the money to give all my backers some extra goodies! These goodies will only apply to pre-orders of the book! See the tiers below! ALSO, The remaining funds will go to helping me print my second book, "Splatter Happens"! Sneak peak of the cover: 

Stretch Goals:

Here are the tiers:

$13,000-

If we push over the $13K mark I will add a BONUS sticker sheet to the one that is already included! If we reach this tier, and you haven't pledged, but are waiting to buy the book at some other time, you will not receive this BONUS sticker sheet in the book.

$16,000- 

If we push over the 16k mark I will add ANOTHER sticker sheet! So you will will have TWO bonus sheets in addition to the one that is provided. This second sheet will be of different designs! 

Here is some artwork done with the Scribble Stickers!!

If you don't want to read all the details below, here's the Short Version:

I'm making a children's book called "I'm NOT just a Scribble..." This is a short story about a Scribble who looks different then all the drawings and because of that is left out, in the end they overcome their differences and make beautiful art! This book is meant to teach children how it is amazing to be unique and inspire creativity! After you read the hardcover book to your child the child can then create their very own version of the main character "Scribble" with the stickers that are provided in the book!  

Consider this Kickstarter campaign as a big pre-sale of the book so we know how many to print for our first run. Regardless of what you pledge, your credit card won't be charged until Aug 13, when the campaign ends. So this gives you the flexibility to change your pledge if I add any new pledges or offer a stretch goal!

Okay here are all the amazing details!

Let's inspire our kids to create ART!

Did you know many of the motions involved in making art, such as scribbling with a crayon are essential to the growth of fine motor skills in young children?

I wanted to create a book that inspired ART in children as well as teaching them to cherish being unique! And I believe this book accomplishes those two things!

The story behind the story

My son actually inspired the character for this book, he's still new to drawing and most of his drawings would be scribbles that he wasn't too excited about. Then one day he got the idea to put two googly eyes on his drawing and his eyes just lit up. And that's how scribble the character was created He started to make all his little scribbles into little creatures and he was so happy! It not only made him want to draw more but gave him confidence with his drawings.

 

 

 

   

 

 

A little about the book

It's a playful rhyming book about a scribble. This scribble looks different then the other drawings and because of that they don't want to play with him. In the end they overcome there differences and make beautiful art! This book's target audience is between ages 2-6

  

 

Stickers!

My son was still putting googly eyes on his scribbles so I thought, why not create stickers! My child just loved them!! So each book will include a sheet of stickers as well so your child can create their own "Scribble"

 

 

Create your own Scribble Story Acitivity Booklet plus MORE Stickers!

For the willing backers who chose to add the coloring book this is a great addition to the book! After they are done reading the book they can begin to create their own story! Each page has some inspirational guidance using some phrases right from the book as well as teaching colors and places! The best part is this will ALSO come with Stickers! These will come with a new set of eye's and mouth expressions then what is provided with the book! 

 

 

 

 

Create your own Scribble T-Shirt :

For the willing backers who choose the grand kid T-shirt or Kid T shirt. This is an amazing holiday gift for a grandparent or parent! Your little one can create their own scribble that you can then wear around! Comes with fabric pen as well (color may vary). 

 

 

The book's done! Now I need your help!

The book is finished and I've spent countless hours getting feedback on the design and story. Creating a rhyming book can have its challenges and I believe I've mastered the flow pretty well. The book is an 8'' x10'' hardcover, 32 pages with 100lb matte paper. It's durable and has an attractive print quality. With my previous experience in self-publishing, I already have a publisher sourced and now it's just ready to be printed

Why Kickstarter? 

There are a lot of upfront costs in publishing your own book. In order to make the book affordable, I need to buy in bulk and I felt it was the best platform to get exposure and earn the money to get the first run printed. 

Where is your money going? 

Printing bulk order, Design, Shipping, Art Case bulk order, label printer, packaging, postage and shipping to you 5% Kickstarter fees, 5% Payment processing fees and a few cups of coffee for me and my husband to work through the night getting everything out! :)

 

Risks and challenges

The book has been written and I have experience working with a reliable publisher. As with any Kickstarter, if I am wildly successful there may be some delays with fulfillment. But our project doesn't rest on any other unknowns.
