Kickstarter Project to Teach Kids Not to Litter

Artist Jennifer Nutter hopes to secure $3,500 to print 1,000 copies of the new edition of her children’s book Rigsby. This award-winning picture book advocates environmental consciousness by teaching readers the harmful effects of littering. Above, we’ve embedded a video about the project.

Here’s more about the project: “The new edition is expanded with additional illustrations, durable covers, and is more earth friendly. Rigsby is a rhyming story with vivid watercolor illustrations showing how the animals team up to overcome litter. Children LOVE the story. Over 10,000 kids have heard or read the book. Many produced Rigsby plays, earned the Rigsby Scout Patch, or made cards and posters to email Rigsby.”

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.
