FUNDED ON KICKSTARTER
On the heels of the successful Kickstarter campaign that exceeded its funding goal, Kiley's Purple Hat is now available for pre-order in print and digital format. During the campaign, the project was selected as a Kickstarter Staff Pick and was recognized on the Kickstarter Tumblr blog for helping address the lack of diversity in children's books.
In addition, several fashion and highly-ranked "Top Mommy Blogs" took notice of the book and were excited to share it with their audience. The Organized Dream had this to say: "There are so many children's books available today. My daughter has a bunch of books and I thought I've seen it all... This book is truly unique."

Beautiful book with wonderful illustrations
Kiley's Purple Hat is a wonderful book for young artists, fashionistas, and art lovers. The story is beautifully written as it grew and transformed into an even more creative storyline. There is an appreciation for colors, and we loved Kiley's discovery of the different hues and textile styles. I can imagine her reaction when she stepped into a big fabric store and filled her senses. My daughter keeps asking for a beret of her own, but I think this will inspire her to make exactly what she wants. The painting bonus at the end helped design her own in a fun way. You can listen to the story as well, which is nice if I have to take care of something and my daughter who is still learning how to read can follow along on her own. The narrator's voice was pleasant and kept a nice pace without rushing. My daughter has already read it at least 2 times that I know of plus took her time when painting the hat. It's a terrific, interactive book.
