" Aya has no problem going to bed at night, the truth is, she enjoys bedtime as it gives her the opportunity to fulfill her dreams. Following the wonderful bedtime stories her mother reads, Aya falls into a blissful slumber.
Enter Aya's world.”
Five years ago I was reading to my goddaughter and I suddenly had a revelation, out of the many books she owned almost none of them starred young black girls. The books that did have black characters I had to order over seas. I decided that I was going to write a children's book that not only reflected her but also, encouraged her to broaden her horizon and dream big. In the last couple of years I have seen a lot more of black British children’s book, which I am happy about, Aya’s World, is one of them.
This book is not only fun and educational; it promotes adventure as well as Geography, and also encourages children to dream big. This will be a great book for children to explore and learn about different countries.
If you donate to this project all proceeds will go towards the book in terms of printing, promotion and a website The book is completed with beautiful illustrations by an amazing artist and words by yours truly.
I have spent my own money in creating the book now all I need is your help to bring this book to light.
Self-publishing is a laborious and expensive business especially picture books. Your support will allow this book to be in circulation
Big or small every penny counts, your support will be hugely appreciated.
Love and Light
