About this project

We are creating a series of children's adventure-style cookbooks where animals of all kinds go on adventures to gather their ingredients and ultimately cook or bake their final product together. Our first story is about a giraffe and an owl who must go through their town to collect ingredients to bake banana bread. Along the way they encounter a monkey, snake, and other animals who help them on their baking quest and work together to make the banana bread as a team. 

We are planning to create a full, interactive children's cookbook where your child can be immersed in a story that takes them on an adventure with animals to learn fun ways to cook, what kind of ingredients go into producing a certain meal, and how they can work as a team to create a final product. 

Our books are designed to be child-friendly, durable, interactive, and easy to use. They are designed with your child in mind and are made with the intention to have fun, learn real-life skills, and put enjoyment into cooking. 

With this book, we are hoping that you and your child find excitement in discovering new ways to be involved in cooking with each other. While interacting with real recipes, coloring pages, and character cards, your child can follow his or her favorite characters and see how they help and interact with the other characters throughout the book. Your child can also have their very own character friendly utensils to use whenever they cook which will help personalize their cooking experience and express their creativity! 

Our books are available in waterproof, paperback, and PDF formats in order to best meet all of your needs, from cuddling up in bed to joining the characters in making recipes. The waterproof version is also spiral bound in order to easily lay open.

Paperback and PDF books are available in French and Spanish translations for a small premium! Simply contact us on Facebook for instructions. 

For any other questions or if you want to purchase individual products like the coloring pages and utensils separately, please contact us through email, Facebook, or Twitter. 

Shipping is currently only available in the United States. If you are outside of the United States, you can still get our PDF version of the book. We hope to expand to more countries once we reach our goal and set up our own online shop.

About our premium reward:

For $500, you or a loved one can be drawn as a character in our book. The character will be recurring, appearing in this book as well as other books in the series!

 Thank you to Castland Productions for the incredible video!

Risks and challenges

As with all projects, there are risks and challenges that come with the process and we want to ensure that everything that could go wrong, doesn't. 

Our major challenge or risk is the fact that we haven't fully written or illustrated the book and won't be able to until after we have reached our financial goal. We have done everything we can to mitigate this risk: we have contracts set up with the necessary parties and have the book planned out to its full length and design.

However, that is where you come in! 

With our cookbook, we want YOU to be a part of the process! Even though we have our concept, some characters, and design in the works, we want to know what you would want to see in our book as well as give you the power to see it come to life. You can provide any feedback, questions, comments, or concerns on our Facebook or Twitter or you can email us at any time. We find this process to be very important and we value your input throughout this campaign.
