The Fable of the Flying Friends is a delightful tale of two unlikely friends – Butterfly & Leaf, and their dream of flying together.
Hello! My name is D'Andrea Martin, and I'm raising funds to create my children's picture book project – The Fable of the Flying Friends. At first look, this story tells the tale of two unlikely friends (a leaf and a butterfly) with a shared wish to go on an adventure together. In a deeper sense, the story is about trust and friendship, and it celebrates hope. This fanciful picture book has a touching story, and engaging, colorful illustrations.
In addition to the full-color picture book, there will also be a companion resource guide available. This reproducible activity guide will feature age-appropriate coloring book pages, puzzles, arts and crafts activities, and safe science fun.
The story for the picture book has been completed, and initial artwork has been created. New pages are being added to the activity guide and other pages are ready for editing. The funds will be used for professional formatting required for printing, book fees, high quality printing of the picture book with a professional book printing company, and the production and binding of the activity guide.
This is an original story I created for my son, Alex, and my dream is to share it with you. Whether the picture book is used as a favorite bedtime story or for your child's quiet reading time alone, it will be the perfect addition in your child's book collection. Also, your child will have many hours of entertainment with the fun pages in the activity guide.

ALL backers of this project will be emailed a customized E-postcard for the child (or adult) of their choice! This E-postcard reward is in addition to all the great backer rewards shown below:
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The main risk or challenge I foresee involves the actual time the vendor will need for the printing of the books. I have been assured of turnaround time windows, and have added ample time on my reward release dates to ensure that all deliverable items will be received by backers on time. The story is written, and the resource guide activities are being reviewed. In the upcoming month, the final touches of the electronic artwork and final editing will be completed.
