Introducing Project OpenBook


What if you invited the world to help write a childrens’ book? What if you asked the world to create great art for it? What if you committed to giving away the profits to something important?  What if?

These are some of the questions we’ve been pondering. So we’ve decided to find out.

We’re calling it Project OpenBook. It’s a community-written, community-illustrated children’s poetry book. We’ll publish the poems on this blog and let you — the community — rate them. And eventually we will publish a book with the best poems. And donate the profits to something awesome — like putting books into the hands of kids who otherwise wouldn’t have access.

We’ve written a bunch of poems and sketched some illustrations to get things started; we’ll be publishing them over the next couple months.

But we can’t do it alone.

Can you write? Can you draw? I hope you’ll consider contributing. If not, there are lots of other ways to help. Read along. Rate the poems. Read them to your kids or grandkids. Email them. Share them.

We don’t know where this road will lead us. But it will be an adventure. And we hope you’ll come along.
