Kickstarter Features a Children’s Book on Kindness

Writer Shervin Youssefian hopes to raise $7,500 on Kickstarter for her chidren’s book project. Youssefian’s young niece Chloe inspired her to write The Story of My Face: A Story About Getting Along.

With this project, Youssefian hopes to teach young readers kindness. The finished book will contain 27 pages and full-color illustrations. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“The vision for The Story of My Face is to achieve what other books like To Kill a Mockingbird have achieved. To plant seeds of tolerance and love in the hearts of our children. Seeds that will grow into oaks of kindness all around the world.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
