One week from now I’ll be launching a Kickstarter to fund the Armenian children’s book I’ve been working on for the last six months. Since July I’ve been building the Kickstarter page, preparing my video, and coming up with some fun rewards for you all to purchase while you support this initiative to provide our children with Armenian language tools that they can start using as soon as they learn how to use the power of their hands.
When I first became pregnant with my now almost 20 month old, people would ask me whether I would be teaching her the Armenian language. For me the question seemed ridiculous, because I’m fluent and simply, ‘why wouldn’t I’? Then during my pregnancy — and even now — it was a futile search to find Armenian books that compared to English kids’ books when it came to style, tone, illustration, and appropriateness for age.
So I decided to write an Armenian kids’ book myself.
Between raising an active toddler, starting my own marketing consultancy, and supporting my husband’s new business (shameless plugs for laveh.com and littlemscrate.com), I’ve been working on making my first Armenian board book a reality.
