Judy Lea, songwriter, children's entertainer and music educator, has finished her first kids' book entitled "Please Don't Go In The Dryer!" It's gone to the printer! And...Publishing is expensive and we need your help! Thanks! (You'll LOVE the book!)

I am very excited to finally make my dream come true - publishing my first children's book! The story started out as a cut from my first CD, “Too Much Work To Do!”, (nominated Best Children’s Album of the Year -  West Coast Music Awards, 1998). It is called Please Don’t Go in the Dryer!, and is about a very cute kitten that keeps getting into everything! The kitten’s human (who has an overactive imagination) is very worried about the kitten getting into the laundry room and jumping in the dryer. The kitten's human imagines three scenarios that are increasingly worrying: the kitten getting stuck in laundry room for days, being sucked through the sock tube and used as nose rags or dental floss by the sock monster, or getting tumbled around in the dryer with the laundry! All worries aside, the story concludes on a warm, sweet note and will have you and your kids laughing out loud! (Seriously, LOL!)

 

I have an amazing team of women working together to create the book: My fabulous illustrator, Anita Ho, has all the artwork ready to go (I can't wait for you to see it!), my fabulous editor, Elaine Littmann, is speedily putting the actual book together, and my wonderful personal assistant, Sydney Thorne (another dream come true), is helping with all the bits and pieces that go into a project like this. And now, all we need to make it into a reality is YOU! Because we want this book out as soon as possible, and we want to have complete control over the content, we are going to self publish (trust me, you will be glad we did!) In order to do so, we need to raise $10,000.00 by November 15th. This amount will cover all the costs: the illustrations, the editing, the printing and the distribution of the first run. 

 

A donation from you will get you a copy of the book, and, depending on how much you donate, a whole bunch of other cool things to go with it! (see the perks on this page). Throughout the campaign, I'll be posting updates on my website and social media about the project and how close we're getting to our goal. I'd love it if you followed along and shared the news with your friends!

 

Thank you so much for all your support.  I can't wait for you to have this book in your hands (or on your device) so you and your child can see and read the book together! You will probably want to order a few so you can send it to friends and family (and you might just want to save one for yourself!)
