Now On Kickstarter, Audie Embraces Different, A Children’s Book About Diversity and Understanding

August 13 03:59 2020
Now seeking community support via Kickstarter, a children’s book about how a giraffe named Audie learns that the creatures around him are as unique as he is.

A new heartwarming story and children’s book series, Audie Embraces Different, is helping a new generation of children embrace the differences among everyday people and animals. Inspired by six-year-old Ezra, a young boy with Autism, Audie Embraces Different is told through the eyes of Audie, a giraffe that is different and struggling to understand and embrace the diversity around him, and a future life of inclusivity. Young Ezra, who helped create Audie to tell his personal story, personifies Audie to capture what it feels like to be and live differently as a young child with Autism. An emotionally compelling story, Audie, with the help of his giraffe mom, learns that everyone is unique and different in their individual way.  

A book to be shared with children worldwide, Audie Embraces Different will be important for educating children around the world about the differences that make us each unique and similar at the same time. With a draft of the book complete, the first illustrations and formatted prints are ready for review ahead of the final publication. Upon successful launch of the children’s book, plans are underway to launch a unique collection of stuffed animal toys that resemble Audie and other characters in the story. Each stuffed animal will give children a friend to hold and lean on as they read Audie’s story.
