Thanks for stopping by and checking our project out. My name is Shane DeRolf and I am a children’s book author and Emmy award-winning writer and producer.
The Sea I See was written over a weekend last August in response to a request by the Georgia Aquarium, the world's largest aquarium. The book was designed by Emmy award-winning designers Greg Carr and Bernard Derriman and The Sea I See video that we've used in this presentation is meant to serve as an animated storyboard of what the book will look like when published.
The Sea I See interprets the issue of extinct and endangered species in a way that focuses on a love for nature's diversity. With the accompanying curriculum we are developing, The Sea I See will give children a way to channel concern into interest and care for nature and its creatures, especially those at risk of perishing forever. Our plan is to partner with aquariums, schools, and non-profits across the country and use The Sea I See as the foundation to help educate (while entertaining) kids about this important message. We've already licensed The Sea I See to the Georgia Aquarium so we're off to a GREAT start!
The $8,500 we hope to raise in our Kickstarter campaign will publish 1,000 hardcover copies of The Sea I See and provide us with the one missing component to launch our initiative across the country.
We hope you love The Sea I See as much as we do and see the value in getting these books published. We hope you decide to become a backer, at any level and if you do, we thank you...
VERY, VERY MUCH!
