Kickstarter Campaign Launched To Fund One-of-a-kind Handmade Childrens Book

Posted: Updated:
“Kiley’s Purple Hat” by Jaxon Barnes is a beginning reader picture book that encourages self-esteem, creativity and spending quality time with family.

Los Angeles, CA – On May 19th, OSAAT Entertainment, a family-owned publishing company creating a buzz in modern literature, has enlisted the help of Kickstarter to crowdfund the production of their handcrafted, one-of-a-kind children’s story, Kiley’s Purple Hat written by Jaxon Barnes and illustrated by Nathalie Beauvois.

Kiley’s Purple Hat, a beginning reader picture book that encourages self-esteem, creativity and spending quality time with family, will be available for purchase this coming holiday season. The story introduces us to Kiley, a young girl who falls in love with colors, textures and the possibilities of creating something with her own hands. After an eye-opening visit to a fabric store and with the help of her mother, Kiley creates the purple hat she had imagined and painted. The handmade collector’s edition makes an excellent gift for little artists and their families and a digital format will also be available for Kindle and iPad.

Through the Kickstarter campaign, OSAAT Entertainment seeks to enter the final stage of production for an on-time holiday delivery of the handmade, Singer side-sewn, fabric-covered book. By paying great attention to the details of the production, OSAAT Entertainment hopes to restore the lost art of storytelling and family story time, providing a product that can be passed down for generations to come.

“There are very few books about little girls who are artists. And even fewer of them are girls of color. We decided to do something about that by publishing a story that promotes positive role models for girls of color,” states publisher Gabrielle Chanel.

This is a story that will make kids fall in love with reading while opening the door for them to be curious about art. Kiley’s Purple Hat is the type of book we would’ve loved to have when we were kids.”

Backers of Kiley’s Purple Hat through Kickstarter will be able to choose from a variety of special rewards, including a VIP Book Signing with the author and a custom illustration of their little one with Kiley. Backers can also choose from a special invitation to the book release party or share their support by sending 5 copies of the handmade book to the school or library of their choice, before it is available to the public.

The Kickstarter campaign is active now and will run through July 2nd.
