(MENAFN- PRLog) — Five diverse friends, Bentley, Jaxon, Toby, Daisy, and Marty, all have disabilities and challenges, but have an important message to share with children: It’s time to celebrate our abilities, not focus on disabilities. The American Fiction Book Awards winning characters will be seen in the New Inspiring Children Series, penned by Canadian Award-winning author Argyro Graphy. The entire series will be available on Kickstarter, with limited-time early bird offers on May 10-11, 2022, which includes an awesome 60% discount.
‘My disability does not define me,’ states Graphy. Disabilities should never be allowed to define us, rather we need to celebrate our differences and accept each other. Bentley Hippo is on a mission and wants you to join him.
Graphy has added a twist to her stories. She created characters with their own disabilities and challenges, but they are full of energy and brimming with enthusiasm. From ADHD to Alopecia, Diabetes, and Autism, she wants children to see past the disabilities.
‘Children need to celebrate their abilities! We must empower them by inspiring them to learn more, share more, include more, and care more – about themselves, and others,’ says Graphy.
The new series is full of bright, beautiful illustrations that impress at the very first glance. The humor and playfulness of the characters and their colorful personalities are vividly captured in the illustrations.
The 5-book series stays away from preaching, and share basic values like love, diversity, and kindness. Graphy hopes to ‘normalize’ the conditions in the eyes of children by featuring each of the character’s personalities. When it comes to grooming young children to grow up as wonderful adults, Bentley and his friends are performing an amazing service.
The new series can be PRE-ORDERED through Kickstarter beginning May 10, 2022. This is an all-or-nothing campaign. If the goal is not met by the end of the campaign, the author will not receive any funds to help with the increasing cost of illustrations, printing, and distribution.
Each book is 32-pages, 8.5×8.5 paperback with bright beautiful illustrations. The series will be available as a boxed set. ISBN: 978-1-989486-33-7
