Today on the Crowdfunding Cast the Kickstarter and Indiegogo podcast I spoke with Barry about his new childrens book. Check it out on Kickstarter!
Here is a summary of the campaign.
Hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian (hip-o-pot-o-mon-stro-ses-kwi-ped-a-lee-un) is an extremely long word that means “of, or pertaining to extremely long words.” This is an abc book containing super-sized words. Believe it or not, all the words in this book are real words. None of them are made up.
This book is meant to be read by parents to their children. Yes, these words are unusally BIG. They are also fun, wacky, & weird. This book will help put parents & children on an even playing field because the parent will have just as much amusement trying to pronounce these words as their kids will. The comical cartoons illustrating every word will appeal to the child in all of us. When parents show their children that there are so many interesting new things to learn – even when you are an adult – it will influence kids to stay curious and to never stop learning.
