A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination?
What do you do when your children want to learn about presidential assassinations, but are not quite old enough for the currently available reference material?
You turn to A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination by author Bryan Young and illustrator Erin Kubinek.
Well you will when it’s available. It’s still in Kickstarter now, and at the time of this writing is 5 days away from completion and over its goal. Still worthy of contribution mind you, and there are still numerous benefits to be had.
“A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination is a beautifully illustrated book born of a child’s desire to learn and a father’s belief that gaining knowledge should be fun and uplifting. It is designed to educate, entertain, and enlighten children from ages 1 to 100.”
The project is being headed by Silence in the Library Publishing. A group of authors intent on creating an environment that allows authors, artists, editors, and other publishing professionals to work collaboratively to keep the creative decisions, throughout the publishing process, as close to the actual creators as possible. This is a great group I intend to spend some time talking about, but not right now, and now here.
History is rough for children. It’s dry, and can be dark and disturbing. But it’s important. This book is a phenomenal tool to help educate children, and adults, on some of the more important and darker historical events in U.S. history.
I really don’t know about you, but really, that’s all I needed to see to sell me on this book. If you are not like me, then it’s possible there is nothing I could say to sell this. If you are like me and are sold, head over to the kickstarter and pick up some of the delicious bonuses before they expire on September 25th
