PARENTS AND TEACHERS LOVE THIS BOOK!
If you've ever tried to teach toddlers how to blow their nose, you know it isn't easy. They will inhale, blow air out of their mouths, and do everything but blow their nose. Parents are left with suctioning the mucus, which is a lot of fun -- not! And sometimes parents will pinch the child's nostrils to help them out. The techniques used in Miles' Stuffy Nose will help your toddler to practice blowing their nose in imaginative ways, such as pretending their nose is a trumpet or the blow hole of a whale! It's much more exciting to learn by using your imagination. This book is great for parents of toddlers and child care teachers too.
Miles' Stuffy Nose was created by myself, I'm an early childhood specialist. If you know anything about educators, it's that they don't have a lot of money. I'm hoping Kickstarter can help with my initial launch so that I can make Miles' Stuffy Nose a reality.
I started SBP, a children's book publishing company because there weren't too many quality books with children of color found in bookstores. I also noticed the same trend was apparent in children's cartoons, and I created Ethnic Animations. The books and animation work well together as a synergy. I produce the animations first and then the accompanying board book or picture book, which is what we did here with Miles' Stuffy Nose.

BEHIND THE SCENES' SECRETS
When I first worked on the concept for Miles' Stuffy Nose, I drew some really rough storyboards that you can see below. I originally told PixelLab that I wanted Uncle Joe to look like Steve Harvey. I really don't know why, but that's exactly how I pictured him. They did a great job improving on my sketches for the final book.
