Help Children Through Reading and Art 2022

Inspire Children Through Reading and Art

Hello, I’m Charles! I’m a children’s book author and lifelong learner.

I started this campaign because every year, hundreds of teachers and families go book banks to gather books for their students and children to build their classrooms and kid-friendly private libraries. Recently I discovered that children who read print books absorb and remember more of the plot than readers of e-books do. I made a goal to add to these libraries with self-published books fictional and education books, starting with my first book, Creative Kareem: And Pierre the Magic Paintbrush. Through these books, I hope to boost children’s self-esteem and development and encourage collaboration and curiosity through exploring the medium of art.

The funds from this campaign will be used to print, deliver and donate these books to public schools, book banks, and libraries, starting with Baltimore City and eventually going nationally.

Book Banks I plan to deliver to by December 2022:

The Maryland Book Bank
International Book Bank Inc
Book Thing of Baltimore Inc
Book Donation Bin
Goodwill Retail Store and Donation Center
Urban Reads

Book available on amazon

Also, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to AdoptAClassroom.com.

If you would like to know more information about Creative Kareem: and Pierre the Magic Paintbrush or to do an interview with Charles, please get in touch with him by email or visit his website.
