Crowdsourcing Mornings: My Social Building Blocks Children’s Book Series

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Have you ever wondered how children learn to act in situations that may be new or different to them? How do they know what is expected of them? Why isn’t there a manual for parents to teach their children how to act properly in public?  Using the My Social Building Blocks series of children’s books can minimize the challenge and frustration in teaching children how to act when they are in a variety of social settings and situations.  It is known that young children absorb more information when it is presented to them in an engaging format, and books are an excellent way to stimulate young minds and involve multiple senses.

In this series of books, children will be presented with common social situations, and can learn what to expect, how to act, and what are appropriate behaviors. The stories are written in first person, and are simple yet cover the important aspects of what to expect in each particular environment. In order to make the story more personal to the reader’s own life, the stories are illustrated using photographs of children in that very scenario.  The series of books written so far include the following topics: Going to School, Playing at the Playground, Eating at a Restaurant, and Going to the Doctor. They plan to write books on many additional topics after the first four books are published.  This crowdfunding campaign will allow them to print and publish 1,500 copies of each of my first two book titles, “I Am Going to School” and “I Am Playing at the Playground”.
