    Your Child Illustrated

    This exclusive and limited reward enables you to get an illustrated version of your child into the book (one child per pledge).

    This reward is limited to 10 backers, for illustrative purposes.

    In addition to the rewards listed below (which includes a signed copy of the book, personalised letter from The Climbing Trees Girls to your child, a Manifesto poster/badge, eBook and printed colouring book) you will receive a letter of authenticity to point out which child in the crowd scene is your child (an illustrated version) and authenticate that it is your child in the picture.

    Once the campaign has ended you will be asked to send a photo of your child that will be sent to the illustrator to illustrate in her style. Please note, the illustration will not be an exact portrait of your child, but will have the same features, and be drawn in the illustrator's style as close to your photo as possible. (E.g. brown curly hair, glasses, wearing a red top, etc).

    Sponsor a Classroom Kit

    Do you know a teacher who would love to give her students a children's book that helps them to be proud to be themselves (along with an eBook to guide those children further with the ABC of Being Yourself)? This reward sends your chosen teacher a pack of 30 YES YOU CAN books and 30 colouring books, shipping included.

    There is also an optional 30 minute Skype call to the classroom where the author will talk about how the Climbing Trees Girls came about and interact with the classroom to find out what their strengths are, what sparks joy in them and what colours, toys and hobbies they love; to then give a few exercises for them to practice in groups and report back at the end of the lesson.

    The pack includes a note from the author (and The Climbing Trees Girls) about why it’s important to be ourselves in a world that sometimes tells us what we should wear/do/play with/look like and why the world puts out these messages. In return for your generosity, you'll get a signed copy of the book yourself. This reward is only available in the UK.

    Includes:
    • 30× Paperback copy of YES YOU CAN children's storybook
    • 30× Printed copy of Exclusive No Limits - Be Yourself Colouring Book
    • "Raising Children Who Are Proud To Be Themselves" eBook
