Announcing FourBears Books: Customized Children’s Books about Your Family!

Written by Juliette Eames

Every Story is Unique

We are very proud to announce the coming launch of our newest product, FourBears Books. We are creating customizable children’s books that commemorate the life and legacy of a loved one. Simply share information with us about the individual whom you’d like the book to be about, and we take care of the dynamic content and beautiful illustrations. The best part, no two books will ever be the same!

Why did we create this product? Because children need better bedtime stories! The characters in children’s books are remembered for a lifetime. These are fundamental moments in their development. Allow their hero and favorite storybook character to be a grandpa who started his own shoe shop, or a grandmother who raised six children solo. Your children will grow to love and appreciate their family narrative and develop what scholars call an “intergenerational self”. They know they belong to something bigger than themselves.

Join us as we launch Fourbears Books on the crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter. The first group of individuals to pre-order their books will receive their copies for the Holiday Season! Make sure to set your calendars for Tuesday, October 24th at 10am!
