About

This is my first written and illustrated children's book so I have put a lot of love and effort into this.

The plot of the book is a about a girl who travels the world. She journeys the world speaking to others in English while learning the culture making friends and the language.She ventures out to learn new things about people. This book is not just aimed at children who speak English but it’s a book that can be used by anyone and helps kids to learn while they read. The book is going to have a total of 18 pages with full bright colours, perfect binding, a soft cover and will be A4 landscape in size. This book is the beginning of a series of adventures in other countries as Edna travels and teaches others English.The book and illustrations are finished and all I need is funding for the printing.

This project was originally inspired to be written in honor of the students I taught English in Jinan China.  I wanted to show the beauty of the town and the love and strength of the people as I travelled from New York to a whole different culture.  It is hand written in English and in Mandarin. 

This book will be a great addition to the many ESL/TEFL schools libraries.  This is the market I would like to target extensively with the funding I receive.

Risks and challenges

As I have already completed the book minus the printing there isn’t really any risks as all of the companies I plan to market ESL schools in the USA and abroad. The only thing that could be affected would be if the file sent to the printers doesn’t meet the specific requirements which Im experiencing now and that would result in a slight time delay of a couple of days, which I have taken into consideration and have set realistic shipping dates if this happens.

The risks that I will encounter are basically the marketing to the China ESL/TEFL schools. However,, I feel confident that my teaching abroad and my newly found connections/friendships will ultimately promote my book to sell.
