Its not only a kids book, it's also educational but most of all ...it's A LOVE STORY!!!

About this project

My name is Darryl Ballinger, the author, I and my illustrator Francois Lange would like to thank you in advance for your support.

  Our vision is to teach as many kids, as well as parents, how important trees are to our planet. Ever since I was a child and my parents taught me the importance of trees and plants. How they are the ones responsible for the earths oxygen and without them nothing could live on the earth. At that moment (about age 6), I was a little "AMBASSADOR" for trees, I told any and everyone who would listen to me. All my life I've had a profound fondness and respect for trees,(I'm 58 now). I believe that my book will give millions of other children the same respect and admiration. "Hi Mr Tree It's Me Sarah" is not only an educational book, It's a Love Story as well. You and your child will laugh and maybe even shed a tear at the end of this heart warming story of a little girl who finds real happiness from a lonely tree. I believe that children are truly our future, we only need to show them the way! My vision is to make as many "Little Ambassadors For Trees" as I can, trees do a lot of things for us, so we only need to tech our children and as they grow up they will teach others. Hi Mr Tree It's Me Sarah is my premier character book but I realized that a second book was necessary, one for the boys. So "Hi Mr Tree It's Me Johnny" was born.

My vision is in two parts (1.) I want to donate 1,000 books to 500 public libraries throughout the United States.(2 per Library) (2.) I want to start a kids tree club, each book comes with an open invitation for all boys and girls to join  "The Little Ambassadors for Trees Club" it will all be done through the internet. The club will provided great information to the kids about the environment and we will have all kinds of games and prizes to win and enjoy. Every child will get there own Back Pack, Cap, T-shirt, Certificate of Membership and of course a copy of the book. 

I will use the funds to complete the development of the book, I need an illustrator, a web site and the means to create 1000 books and to mail them to 500 libraries across the country.

I have a prototype of the book and I found a great publisher who's very interested in publishing it, I only lack the funds to make it a reality. I have great confidence that the parents will take off with kids on this exciting journey.

Remember this is an all or nothing opportunity!!!

Thank you Kickstarter
