Spark: How to write a book with your kids â?¦ and why you should (Repossible Book 3)

by Bradley Charbonneau

The question I most get having now written 5 books together with my kids is not about the characters or the dog or the castle or if Lu will ever stop eating fries.*

No. The question I get from parents is, “How in the world did you manage to do a creative project with your kids, how did it go, and how can I do it, too?”

The answer was:

1.) I just decided to do it,
2.) it went both terribly wrong and wonderfully right, and
3.) this book is how you can do it, too.

One parent pulled me aside, a bit frazzled, and almost threatened me with, “If you ever hold a weekend workshop on how to do a creative project together with your kids, I’ll pay whatever you want to charge.”

When I sat down with my then-8-year old on the red chair in early March of 2014, having just read a really bad children’s book and said, “Wow, that book was pretty bad.” I then immediately followed up with, “We can do better than that.” My son looked at me like I was crazy (I was) and challenged me to follow through on my dare.

I did.

Within a month, we had a book on Amazon.

Now we can boast almost all of the list below:

1.) We have sold 1,000,000+ books in 89 countries and 7 languages.
2.) We sometimes had to resort to bribery, coercion, and ice cream to get a chapter done.
3.) Just on royalties alone, Li is eyeing a Maserati for his 16th birthday.
4.) We created something from nothing and no one can ever take that away.
5.) We get regular calls from Hollywood producers about making the movie versions.
6.) We broke all of Audible’s rules when we recorded the audiobook version–and got rejected.
7.) Both boys have transformed into perfect angels who study Mandarin in their free time after violin lessons and before their volunteer work for global literacy.
8.) I have a audio proof of my 10-year old narrating Chapter 8 that I can use at his wedding to embarrass him beyond his wildest nightmares and I can bring that up whenever I like to remind my boys that we are a family who shares experiences (and it’s good for blackmail).
9.) We did it all right.
10.) We did it all wrong.
11.) We did it. Period.

HINT: Take the list above and choose which one you like.

This book is proof that we can create something from nothing together with our kids. What you’re about to embark on is a journey that no one can take away from you. We’re going to create a time capsule you’ll be able to cherish until your 89-year-old neighbor finally tells you she’s deaf and hasn’t heard a word about it.

This book is going to help you create a bond with your kids.

For the record:

1.) We’re not shooting for stardom (at least, not beyond your family).
2.) It’s almost guaranteed it won’t win any literary awards.
3.) I don’t care if you sell 7 copies. (P.S. Either will you.)
4.) We’re shooting for the experience of starting, persevering, and finishing a creative project with parents and children that you can be proud of (or cringe over).

I’ve got to finish up this bit here as I need to interview my teenager for our latest book, “What I Wish I Knew When I Was 13.” He hates the idea so far. Usually, that’s a firm indicator that it’s going to be a success.

Speaking of success, we’re not going to succeed if we don’t get started. Let us help you get started. Ready?

* Lu will NEVER stop eating fries.

The Language of Design

by Samuel Mwituria Maina

Preface
This book provides useful insights about concepts, theory and history of art and design in their various kinds of manifestations. The book suggests how the above qualities affect practice and appreciation of products of art, design and architecture. It also mentions how designers organize and apply works of art. It is in the realm of organization that aesthetic products can take justifiable credit for their trends towards modernity. Of course they still leave much room for further improvements. That is why this book endeavours to summarize historical and contemporary trends of art and design.

Artists, designers, architects and students of these areas will find this book handy and informative .The concepts and facts in this book will help them understand the qualities of good design. Topics in the book are designed for courses in colleges, universities and schools of art. Also incorporated in this book are topics for a general reader. I had consulted widely before selecting these topics. Indeed in response to recommendation by interested parties, i have also included some indigenous arts.
