Hi Everyone,

In July of 2017, thanks to the donation efforts of my first crowdfunding campaign, I successfully published my first children's book, "Your Hands Can Change The World!"  From this book, I was able to create an educational resource that deepens and extends the lessons in the book. I was also able to create a blog/website which contains my book and updates, writing and educational workshops, and my personal creative writing. 

Today, I'm actively marketing my book and website at market fairs, in-store book signings, and online. 

Publishing a children's book was a lot of hard work, but the fulfillment of sharing my book with families has been a powerful and uplifting experience. I've met some wonderful people, learned a lot about myself, and received some helpful insights. And it is just the beginning. 

I am in the process of creating a book *series* for young readers about how to share with each of our 5 senses, and I need your help to bring the next 2 books to life. 

The 2nd book in the series is almost complete.
With your help, I'll be publishing 2 more books in my series this year: 1 book about how we can share with our eyes, and 1 book about how we can share with our mouth. 

The money raised through this crowdfunding campaign will be used for the publishing costs of 2 new books, plus minor improvements to my first book and a new hardback version. I will also create educational resources to pair with the new books just as I did for my first book. The money donated to this campaign will also be used to give me the time I need to accomplish this goal, and to actively market my books. 
The estimated delivery of the finished books is October 2018. 

The best way I know to show my gratitude for your support of my campaign is to continue to work hard, never give up, and to always shine my own personal light into the world through the words and pictures in my books. I have also set up some pretty sweet reward levels this time to show how much I appreciate the support.

If you donated to my campaign last time, I hope you will consider doing so again. If you weren't able to the first time, here's another chance. EVERY amount helps. Every dollar encourages me to keep going, knowing I have a structure of support pushing me forward. It means the world to me, and I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for your time and energy! If you have any questions or concerns, please ask anytime. 

All the Best,
Cristee Cook

I received this message from a teacher who purchased my book. Here’s what she said:

“Each of my students planted a helping hand and shared how they would help or use their hands! I typed each use! It was very beautiful! I look forward to the other senses! An amazing book! I will, one day have the courage to write my own book!
ENL Teacher” ❤️

Needless to say I am so touched. This is one of the reasons I wrote this book and I dreamed it would help others.
