Find The Cutes ~ Playtime: An Activity Book For Children (VIDEO & SLIDESHOW)

Not long ago, I came across this project for a fun activity book for children called «Find The Cutes ~ Playtime». The book is drawn and colored by a talented illustrator named Vincent Noot and written by his wife Celestial. So I decided to help this terrific couple achieve their funding target by spreading the word.

This activity book is not an ordinary book, but rather a search book and it is for children of all ages that love exploring. It is based on the same concept as the other activity book that you probably know called «Where's Waldo?», but basically for children. It stimulates the imagination, educates, entertains and inspires.

The story is about a family of five children named the «Cutes». A funny detail is that all the kids’ names begin with the letter “C”. Their names are Carissa, Chaz, Cade, Cammy, and Cindy. The story started with the idea that, in large families, the oldest daughter often has to babysit her younger siblings.

With a total of 12 search pages and 4,785 characters, this kids' search book is for children ages 3 and up. It is hours of fun for the whole family. The Noots are planning to make it into a tablet game for  iPad, kindle, and other devices. The entire series of 10 books will be family oriented. So stay tuned!

Each page took almost 100 hours to create and each character is hand-drawn as well as colored in Photoshop by Vincent Noot. Celestial Noot did most of the writing. Overall, the book took a year to complete.

You will find below a slideshow that I put together with some of the pictures taken from «Find The Cutes ~ Playtime». It will give you a pretty good idea about the excellent quality of drawings you can expect from the activity book.

If you want to show your support, you can like their Facebook page, follow their Twitter account and check out their pins on PinterestYou can also visit their website, Find The Cutes, to learn more in depth about this colorful and educative activity book as well as have the opportunity to meet the Cute kids.

But to be able to complete the whole series, this inventive couple needs your help. Vincent Noot and his wife have put their project on Kickstarter in hope of raising enough money. Each pledge is a step closer to the realisation of the entire project.Below is the video that was created by the Noots to promote their Kickstarter project:

An Answer to the Problem of Finding Diverse Children's Books for All Children in All Families

Why is it so hard to find books for children that truly represent the diversity in our world? Author S. Bear Bergman shared with me that in 70% of children’s books where people are featured, boys are the main characters. In 93% of children’s books where people are featured, the main characters are white. In terms of books that feature gender-independent children or LGBT families, the percentage is negligible.    Read more >

Where Are the Brown Girls in Teen/YA Books?

I went to the 2014 National Book Festival with two of my daughters.  Elle, a high schooler, is the voracious reader of the family.  Often times, before any of the rest of us can finish reading – or even begin to read – a book that we’ve checked out of the library or bought at the bookstore, she has “borrowed” and finished the book, then handed it back with a quick review.  No book is safe in her arm’s reach (and she has long arms.)  Nat came along, too; still in elementary school, she reads when and if she feels like it.   Read more >
