The Project:

Hi there! I’m Claressa Swensen, the author of Little Bear and His Chair. Little Bear and His Chair is a full color picture book, complete with whimsical illustrations that can be enjoyed by children of all ages. I wrote this story to teach the value of friendship as well as the importance of sharing, and by pledging just a few dollars or more, you can help make this book a success! Please take a look at some of our incredible rewards, and as always, thank you for your support!

About the story:

This children’s story is about a little bear who has a favorite chair, and he doesn’t want anyone else to sit on it. When his stubbornness gets in the way of his friendships, Little Bear has to decide what is more important to him.

Who is Little Bear?

Little Bear is a spunky energetic brown bear, who, despite his small size, can sometimes be very feisty and stubborn. When he lets his negative traits take over, he risks gaining a bad reputation in the forest, and more importantly, losing his best friend, Ryan the Lion.

What makes this book different?

Aside from being a great story with fun relatable characters, and amazingly detailed artwork, this book has a short animation that actually brings the book to life! From beginning to end, each page displays the true personalities of the characters through animated footage, making this story tons more fun to read! If you choose a reward that comes with the movie, you will receive a dvd with your book that animates every page, so you or your little ones can enjoy turning each page in your physical book, as you watch the movie bring it to life.

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding service where the community can support creative people giving them the resources they need to turn their ideas into reality. In my case, I hope to raise the money necessary to pay for the illustrations, animation, rewards, as well as printing the book.

Where will your contributions go?

  • 45% Production of books and rewards
  • 30% Illustrations
  • 10% Shipping expenses and supplies
  • 10% Kickstarter and processing fees
  • 5% Miscellaneous (legal fees, marketing, etc)

Risks and challenges

The only risk I could think of, would be getting the rewards out on time. The animation is almost complete, and the illustrator is currently hard at work putting the finishing touches on the book. With the illustrations estimated to be completed in December, I am very confident in having the book printed and all rewards delivered in February of 2018. We really only need the funds to move forward.
