The Adventures of AkaPaca & Tatter-Anne: Great Friends
Hello!!! I’m Ann.
This is an adorably sweet first book in a series that children already love. With a 2-3 grade RL, it’s still a wonderful Read-Along story that younger children will love. I’ve given the full manuscript to a few parents I know. The reactions of the children is priceless. When her mom finished the first time, a 4 yr old girl asked, “Can we buy that at the library tomorrow?” Another mom announced that her 5 year old son had already had her read it about 50 times witin only a week! This was without pictures.
I’ve found the perfect fit in an illustrator, Anastasya Bulavkina. Her style brings out the sweet, tenderness and the soft feel that touches the heart. Even her simple layout sketches, that I’ve added here, show the gentle innocence of a child.
The Adventures of AkaPaca & Tatter-Anne provide an engaging means to show children that differences are good and you can have a great friendship with someone very different from yourself if you reach out and accept not only who they are, but who each of us are also.
The production of this book will include:
Illustrations, book design, ebook design, cover art, marketting/PR, Publishing, printing, shipping, book mark designs, when we reach our goal, we’ll be able to commision additional art for rewards and promotional purposes.
With literacy as a cause dear to me, I’m going to donate a portion to the pubslush literacy program. I’d also like to donate actual books to some children’s literacy programs in the US. My goal here is to identify 3 programs to donate a minimum of 50 books to each.
I need the support of you and others that value this dream also.
