Crowdfunding for New Storytelling Card Game by an 11 year old
What is this about? A new Storytelling Card Game developed by an 11 year old. Press the link to go directly to the campaign. Gabriel's Story
This storytelling card game is a way to help inspire creativity by using a child's imagination. Many children get writer's block. They spend half of their time just trying to figure out what to write about. I am one of those children. I thought, wouldn't it be easier to have a picture to prompt an idea? And with that, this storytelling game was born. With wonderfully illustrated pictures children will become inspired to create fun and imaginative stories to write about or verbally tell. This is a card game and can be taken anywhere. Children can use it for their story writing or as a fun game to play with family and friends. This game is engaging. Want to get a group of people to suddenly bond and laugh together? Play the game and instantly fun ensues.
Funding will also go towards the producing of more books in The Adventures of Joe-Joe Nut and Biscuit Bill Adventure Series. These are mystery books that are science based. Teachers in school districts or homeschools will be able to use these books as a cross curriculum for students in 2nd to 5th grades. They fill a niche. They are mysteries that cover topics such as animal tracks, rocks and minerals, and weathering, erosion, and art. The newest book will incorporate Greek Mythology.
Here is the summary of the new book to be published this year:
Book 4 is The Parade of Heroes
Greek History abounds in this 4th adventure in the Joe-Joe Nut and Biscuit Bill award-winning mystery series. Joe-Joe and Biscuit are visiting Acorn Valley's Greek Festival when mysterious things begin happening. Greek hero balloons for the parade are stolen, as are other Greek related items throughout the town. With the parade being a day away, will Joe-Joe and Biscuit be able to make the connection between the items and solve the case before all events are cancelled? Educational fun is added to the back of the book that will enhance learning as readers dive into the world of a Greek mystery.
This book will satisfy the standards schools are requiring for Greek Mythology. Great to use in the classroom. This is a fun way to cover this field.
There are also some great perks parents and authors will enjoy being apart of. Like a free author visit to your child's school anywhere in the U.S., a chance to be on my radio show, and to receive books and card games. A nice lunch with the author, and more. Check them out. These are great opportunities.
Thanks so much for your support. My son, Gabriel, wanted to create something special to help children write great stories by creating a storytelling card game. I am so proud of him for wanting to create it and sell it himself.
Please support this crowd funding. If you cannot at this time, that's okay, I completely understand, but please forward and pass this on to as many people as possible. Thanks so much.
