The Nightingale's Song (reprint) is about the beauty of every child, and the diversity of our human family.
This picture book has been in the works for over 20 years, and it's been a passion project for me. I have presented it in schools, and I wish you could see the faces of the children LIGHT UP when they see themselves in the pages, and see that they are beautiful, good enough, and precious. It was first published in 2018, but the publisher had to close its doors. In the short amount of time it was out, it won a silver in the Nautilus Book Awards, as a book that promotes peace.
The Nightingale's Song is a way to start a conversation about human dignity and our beautifully diverse human family. Although based on Baha'i writings, the book is written and illustrated in a way that is religion-neutral, and will reach and connect with children of ALL backgrounds and all faiths (or no faith), school children, and youth groups.
Children are worth the effort. They are worth our very best.
Thank you for being a part of this project. Your contribution matters!
Risks and challenges
I expect to receive the books in November, and I will ship them as soon as I receive them, so they have the best chance of arriving before the holidays. Although I can't guarantee they will arrive on time (snail mail being snail mail, especially for overseas shipping!) I will do my UTMOST to get them to you before the holidays!
The SKYPE/ZOOM meetings may be scheduled in 2019 or 2020, according to what works best for both parties, but will be fulfilled in a timely way. A test run prior to the meeting will be required, to make sure our connections are good.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
