I hope so! In fact, I'm counting on it.
Each year more than 1 million kids get lured into trafficking all over the world, including in the U.S. Some of them are just 5 years old.
If you read this blog regularly, you know that The Born2Fly Project to stop child trafficking is smack in the middle of pilot-testing our innovative program to reach kids before the traffickers do.
Now we're hoping to fund expansion of the program through sales of a new ebook for kids:
It's called Born to Fly: The tale of a dream that would not die. And it features the same storyline as in the wordless book that's the centerpiece of The Born2Fly Project.
It's a delightful tale about what it takes to pursue your dream. I like to say it's a novel for children--and adults who can still think like children.
Born to Fly costs just $5.99. What a deal, huh? And proceeds go to The Born2Fly Project to stop child trafficking.
Blossom shows kids how to go after their dreams
OK, so I'm biased, but Born to Fly is one of the cutest children's books you'll ever read. Here's a little teaser on the plot:
Blossom is in big trouble. Her grandfather warned her not to go beyond the village gates. After all, no caterpillar in Twig Valley has ever ventured there and returned to tell.
For centuries the caterpillars of Twig Valley have lived with a Dark Cloud over the land. For as long as anyone can remember, no caterpillar has ever become a butterfly. In fact, no one thinks about being anything more than a bug that crawls in the dust of the ground.
The storyline is by yours truly with 43 charming illustrations in soft pastel by artist Leah Wiedemer:
