The just-launched Kickstarter is for a new children’s book project about nature, friendship, and music that is written to be engaging for both parents and their children. The story focuses on forest creatures becoming friends and making music, including a loon, beaver, bullfrog, and an owl.
The book Liam the Loon is also aimed at being an educational story about creativity, individuality, and overcoming life’s obstacles. With the quiet pond and natural setting, author Ryan Holbrook intends to help children engage with the outdoors, learn about the importance of preservation, and embrace their own unique personalities.
Backers of the now-available Kickstarter campaign can pledge to support different levels of rewards. Many of those center around the book itself, which is an 8”x10” hardcover book of about 700 words intended for ages 3-8 that features colorful hand-painted watercolor illustrations and animal facts.
Additional pledges for the Liam the Loon Kickstarter campaign include signed Liam the Loon illustrations, unsigned copies of the book, signed copies of the books and illustrations, and packages of multiple books.
If you’re wondering where the inspiration for this story comes from, Liam the Loon takes details from the author’s childhood by being set in the Maine wilderness. The story is inspired by wildlife found in the region and a conversation with the author's wildlife enthusiast close friend, Captain Todd. It's designed to be of interest to local residents (or those in similar wildlife habitats), as well as parents who would like to teach their children about that specific environment, the interesting creatures that live among them, and awareness about conservation.
