About

 

 

We would like to thank you for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter pre sale launch for the children's book"Mia London's Perfectly Perfect Pajamas."

Our Inspiration To Write This Book

 As a family we found ourselves running in and out of stores weekly trying to locate children's clothing which reflected Mia & Dean. It literally hit me close to 9 years ago while pregnant with Dean that it would be extremely difficult to find wearable item for children of color in mainstream stores.  When Mia came along it became a weekly regiment of ours to travel each Tuesday to different clothing stores in hopes of locating one or two items with images of little brown girls on them. 

Dean knew our routine he would say "We are going to look for little brown girl clothes for Mia today right?". He would help me search shelves all the way to the very bottom in hopes of finding something...anything with little brown girls.  Soon the "routine" became tiring to Dean and after yet another Tuesday disappointment he looked up at me and said "Mommy we're not going to find any brown girls here." I agreed. As we walked out of the store he suggested we'd tell EVERYONE that we couldn't find any clothes with little brown girls for Mia anywhere. We should write a book! 

However, instead of writing a book right away we decided to  begin a social media resource page (Cocoa Mocha Kids) to help parents of children of color find products which represented their children. 

Collectively Dean & I decided we would revisit his suggestion of writing a book about (in his words) not finding stuff for Mia. Now we have completed the book and ALL of the illustrations are FULLY funded.However, we would be extremely appreciative if you would help us  get "Mia London's Perfectly Perfect Pajamas" to the print phase with this pre sale launch.  Even if you do not have a child of your own this story is a wonderful gift for any child in your life. We have some wonderful pledge rewards at different levels for all of our supporters. We think you will really enjoy them. 

 About The Book

Excited for Pajama Fun Day at her school, Mia London is overjoyed with having the chance to choose a pair of new pajamas with her mother. However, Mia London is quickly confused as to why in all the pajama stores she visits, none of the girl characters pictured on the pajamas look quite like she does.

Meet Mia London

 After searching and searching Mia London finally finds her perfect  pajamas. However, overtime Mia London's pajamas get smaller and smaller. Unfortunately, there aren't any other similar pajamas like Mia London's perfectly perfect pajamas at the store.Where will Mia London find another set of perfectly perfect pajamas?

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter campaigns operate under an "all-or-nothing" funding model so if Mia London's Perfectly Perfect Pajamas doesn't reach it's goal at the end of 36 days, no money exchanges hands, and we will have to wait to get this wonderful book in hard cover.

The book is fully written and illustrations are already fully funded. We're putting the finishing touches on illustrations and the final book layout. We also have a press lined up. All that leaves is the actual printing of the book , additional rewards & packaging.

Books could be slightly delayed due to to printing. However we would love to send all other rewards out for the holiday season.
We will update backers with any potential issues that may arise.
