Help us raise funding to have our book, Elvis Sunny Bear, translated! 1st in a series of children's books focusing on difficult topics.

"Elvis Sunny Bear" is the first in a series of children's books about a little brown bear and how he overcomes the many problems in his young little brown bear life.  "Elvis Sunny Bear" covers the topic of depression. Books 2 through 4 cover problem solving, bullying, anger management and stress.

In "Elvis Sunny Bear", Elvis awakens from his winter hibernation with a case of the "blues".  With help from others, he is able to turn the "blues" around and into a "sunny" disposition.

"Elvis Sunny Bear" is already published and available in the Amazon Kindle store.  It is also available in paperback format on Amazon.com through print-on-demand / publication by CreateSpace - in both full-color and black & white interiors.  The quality of the printed versions quite exceeded our expectations!

About the Elvis Sunny Bear series:

We feel that developmental learning in children and adolescents is timeless, and that the skills needed for that development is best absorbed through stories. With the days of stories being "told around the camp fire" and of tribal or large family learning sets being long since past, the necessity of teaching these learning sets and ancestral stories is more important than ever.

In addition to being entertaining, this title and the other stories in the 'Elvis Sunny Bear' series from Ted E. Bear Press are designed specifically to provide a methodology for parents, teachers and children to address different, and sometimes uncomfortable, topics in a way that is respectful and informational without having to be too scientific or direct – yet still provide needed resources and education.

Why this funding request?

We've had a tremendous number of request from parents and educators around the world for translations of the first book, Elvis Sunny Bear.

Unfortunately, professional translation services can be expensive!

Our goal of $2,500.00 in funding is to pay for the translation of the first title in the series, "Elvis Sunny Bear" into the five languages we have had the most requests for: Russian, Ukrainian, Portuguese, French, Italian.

All translated versions will be available in print (both full-color and black & white ) and eBook versions.

What happens if we get over our goal?

Each additional $500.00 in funding that we receive will allow us to have Elvis Sunny Bear translated into one additional language!

And, if we run out of languages to translate the first title into, we'll start on translations for the next title!
