I couldn’t think of a more meaningful day to launch my very first KickStarter for my newest project – The Historical Heroines Coloring Book: Pioneering Women in Science from the 18th and 19th Centuries than yesterday – the first day of Women’s History Month! I can’t seem to shake this desire to work towards inspiring children, teens, and adults – and so I continue to create empowering and educational books.
The idea behind this particular coloring book is a bit more unique in that each woman scientist will be featured as a double page spread. On the lefthand side I will provide a short biography and on the righthand side, the coloring image itself, drawn by Kendra Shedenhelm. Each coloring illustration will incorporate some of what that woman scientist accomplished. Michael Barton, a science historian, who helped write the biography on Charles Darwin for my Piratess Tilly children’s picture books will be assisting me with research and editing.
I am really excited about this project and hope you feel the same. If so, please consider both sharing the project with your friends and family as well as contributing to the campaign by pre-ordering the book at a discounted rate and therefore becoming an official backer!
P.S. My daughter Vivi helped with the video and I couldn’t be prouder! Check out the campaign here! Thank you!!
