This will be your child's next favorite book! Beautiful illustrations and fun poetry introduces 36 healthy foods to eaters of all ages.

About this project

This will be an amazing book!

This book is ready for the printers! This book advocates for the introduction of healthy whole foods as well as breastfeeding. Babies need real live food, not highly processed overpriced factory "food". It is a real joy to introduce foods to an interested young child. Each bite is an adventure in texture, taste, and color. This book is for foodies of all ages. The rhyme and word play is fun to read and listen to, and the illustrations are brilliant! 

 It has been made with love and care.

We have written and illustrated a great book! We need your help to get the book published. We do not want to wait for years to see if a publisher will actually publish the book, so we plan to self publish. 

If you contribute $35 or more, the type of book you will receive depends on our goals...

We are sure that the book will be square, but we are not sure if it will be a paperback, board book, or hardcover- This depends on you and how much we raise. The more people that purchase the book, the better the quality of the book.

Our basic goal is $2650- that will be to publish a 8.5 * 8.5 paperback color children's book. 

If we raise $4500- we will be able to publish a limited edition color board book with the same dimensions.

If we raise $7500- we will be able to publish a hardcover book that has a parent section on nutrition and charts that show what age each food should be introduced.

If we raise $10,000- We will make an amazing hardcover top quality children's book with parent section as well as some of our favorite healthy recipes.

This is your chance to get a Phil Wassell original!!!

Many of our incentives are limited edition items. The original hand drawn and painted spreads will be framed and ready for any child's room. We will let contributors pick which spreads they would like on a first bid basis, so contribute now!

If you are interested in us writing a book with you, come and meet us! We will take you to our favorite restaurant.

You will love the magnetic photo frame with the magnetic poetry that uses words from the book! The stickers will be of the foods in the book.

Here is a peek at the final spread of the book:

Here is an idea for the sticker layout.

Should we keep the mini cover or have just foods for the whole thing? This will be a 4 inch by 6 inch sheet. We are hoping to get high quality, die cut vinyl. What do you think? Tell us on our Facebook page. The link is below.

Risks and challenges

The book is complete, so if challenges arise it will be due to getting things made.

Depending on the type of book there may be delays with printing. There may be a delay in the delivery of Granny's apple sauce if there is a drought and no apples this year. I promise that I will send you a jar as soon as there are ripe apples ready to fall off the trees.

We will work with all of our supporters to ensure that you are satisfied.
