Illustrator Will Terry hopes to raise $5,240 for his children’s book project, I HATE READING! Follow this link to track Terry’s progress as he works on this pro-literacy app and eBook. Above, we’ve embedded a video about the Kickstarter project–what do you think?
Here’s more about the project: “Yep, I’m the cat who hated reading. I was a terrible student. And to make it worse, my older sister had straight A’s! ‘What’s wrong with Will?,’ my parents, teachers, and clergy would say. There’s one word that most accurately describes what’s wrong with a child who hates reading. Nothing. Sure, not reading can be incredibly painful. I was so relieved when I finally found that reading can be desirable, fun, even joyful.”
