Story Antics Kickstarter campaign to fund first-of-its-kind, personalised recipe storybook series
Today, personalised storybook company, Story Antics launches a $10,000 Kickstarter campaign to fund its personalised recipe storybook series, the first of its kind to market and a conceptual gamechanger for the personalised children’s book industry.
Written by Amy Whiteford, the voice behind Healthy Little Foodies, and illustrated by emerging artist and graphic designer, Britney Fong (also known as kinnju) the series will feature six different storybooks suitable for children aged three to 10, with each title offering a different healthy recipe story for aspiring little chefs to read and create in the kitchen.
“This Kickstarter campaign is vital to help raise the funds needed to deliver this storybook series to children across the world. We’re endeavouring to create a reading experience that is educational, tactile and social in its purpose,” said Lara Solomon, founder of Story Antics.
Each personalised recipe storybook is brought to life through beautifully whimsical illustrations that capture the playfulness of the combined reading and cooking experience.
With recent industry research indicating that kindergarten to year 12 students who average a daily reading time of less than 15 minutes are only exposed to an average of 1.5 million words compared to the 5.7 million words for those children who read for 15-29 minutes, the vitalness of regular comprehensive reading is again in the spotlight.
“As the prevalence of technology is only increasing, it’s becoming progressively common to see that time spent reading books is falling by the wayside. It’s imperative as parents, teachers and caregivers that we continue to educate and open young minds to the intellectual and creative benefits of reading. It’s a love that lasts a lifetime,” said Solomon.
With a new title to be released every month, beginning in April 2020, Story Antics is offering a unique opportunity for children to receive the recipe storybooks as a monthly mail out.
The recipe storybooks will retail for AU$20 each but with a $100 pledge to the Kickstarter campaign, you will receive all six titles in the series.
With the campaign ending on Thursday, 9 April 2020 there are several ways to pledge your support.
