It all started with a book he wanted to write for his son, and then he wanted to share it. The internet made that all possible. Right now, you can flip through the pages online. Will the next step be a ‘born digital’ book?

Wow. This might be my favorite post to this blog yet. Thanks for sharing! What a great example of how necessary a published, physical book is for children, but also showing that the internet can be a tool to reach out to so many more thousands of readings that can’t afford buying it. I also like the fact that his intentions are entirely pro-bono/for good will. He’s not in it to make a buck, be simply wants to write children’s books for the sake of inspiring children and encouraging them to read. His project started out so small, and because of social media and other forms of communication, his story was picked up. Really cool!

My nephew has read that book! He loved it too. He kinda got his “big dream” when he wrote that book and finally got published to millions of kids when Harper called. That right there is inspiration to go out and chase those dreams.
