Your Best Coaches is a children’s picture book about a young boy on a baseball team and whose best coaches in life are his mother and father. This book has a very important message: through high and low points in life, your parents will always be there to root for you.

Your Best Coaches is a 24 page full color, hardcover children’s picture book illustrated by the very talented Kika Esteves. You can read this book to your child, give it as a unique gift for a baby shower, or a gift for new parents or even your own parents. This is also a great book to read to your students to discuss the idea of role models in their lives.

This is how Kickstarter works: I have 30 days and I need to raise $12,000. If I don’t raise the total amount by the end of the 30 days, this project will not be funded. Your support will help me cover various expenses including the illustrations, some legal and registration fees, PR and marketing and, of course, to get it printed and ship it out.

On the right side of this projects page, you’ll see all of the different levels of rewards. Whatever you can give between $10.00 and $1,000 will help me fund this project. And for each amount you give, you get a different reward. The awards are cumulative, so the more you give, the more you get. If I exceed my funding goal, which I hope to, I will be able to adapt and publish some of my other works ultimately creating a line of children’s books.

If you are an educator and are interested in reading and discussing this book with your students, you will receive a FREE educator's guide to the book. After pledging, please send me a message noting that you are a teacher, and I will personally send you your classroom materials.

This project is very important to me and I hope you support this and share it with your friends and family.

Thank you so much for your support!  I look forward to having you read Your Best Coaches.

Louisa Luisi, author of Your Best Coaches
