Customize your Child's books to look like them and their family.
We are making amazing personalized children's books for families of all backgrounds. Family-Stories is about giving parents the opportunity to read a book to their child that does not raise questions about their family or ethnicity but rather embrace it! Black, White, Asian, Hispanic or just about anyone--our books can be customized to all. You can also put your family in it (up to 2 adults): Mom/Dad, Mom/Mom, Dad/Dad, grandma/grandpa, uncle/uncle or a single parent...just about anyone. Create your characters using our selection tool and we will ship your book with your customized characters in it.
How does it work?
At Family-Stories, we believe that the more kids know about the world and the different cultures that are a part of it, the more they are likely to love them, rather than fear them. We invite you to be a part of this journey to inspire and empower the heroes within our children. We want to create a series of books that educate our kids about love, diversity, inclusion and acceptance by putting them in the stories that they read.
Our first book
Our first book is about your child going on a magical treasure hunt to 7 different countries--Peru, Kenya, Australia, Jordan, China, Italy and the United States. In each country, your child meets a local kid who tells them a little about their local culture and helps them find a treasure that takes them to the next country.
If we meet out goal ($15,000):
Create 1 new title and build up our technology to enable us to create more personalized titles in the future:
"Animal Friends"--our next personalized book where your kid travels around the world saving 8 endangered animals. Kids love animals and we believe that the more they know about our furry and feathered friends, the more they will be inclined to do their part to make sure these animals get a fighting chance to survive.
Stretch Goal: $30,000
Build up our technology and art to add more characters that can be personalized, such as siblings and PETS!!!
Stretch Goal: $50,000
We will create a total of 3 new titles: Animal Friends & two more titles which we haven't yet decided upon. We encourage you to reach out to us if you have any ideas.
Stretch Goal: $100,000
We will further develop our technology into a self-publishing platform and open it up to Independent Authors and Illustrators who would like to publish their own personalized books.
*We will be able to add siblings and pets if we reach out 30,000 stretch goal.

Our happy family
Our journey (so far): It wasn't easy to develop the first version of our technology and art work. We put our heart, soul and of-course all our money in it and had to quit our jobs to make this happen. There were many sleepless nights and problems that seemed impossible to solve--but when you have the right team and the right people who are passionate about what they do, you can make anything happen.
Risks and challenges
Our technology is fairly new, so there is a chance that we may not be able to develop our characters the way we want, or it may take us longer than expected to develop our technology from a 1-book platform to a multi-book platform.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
