Hmong Children's Book Update #6

My printing company has finished the lamination process, rounded the corners of the books, and... have packed the books! Yay! Now I'm working with a freight forwarder to have these books shipped to me. It'll still be a few weeks for transportation but as soon as I get the books sent to my house, I'll prepare the shipments for all the preorder customers. I am confident that you'll get the book before Christmas :) I want to say once again, THANKS to all of you who preordered these books back in September. You trusted me even before I had the finished products in my hands. I am forever grateful to you and I'm so excited to share this book with you so that you can read it with the...

Hmong Children's Book Update #5

In the book update #4, I mentioned that I had given our printing company the final approval to start mass producing our books. In this update, I have good news: they've finished printing the books! Below are some pictures of the books in the factory: It's so cool to see the behind the scenes process of book printing!!! I'm so glad they sent me these pictures so that I could share them with you :) They are currently working on the gloss lamination process. Once that is finished, they have to bind the books then get them ready to ship to me and once I receive them, I'll get the books ready to be shipped out to our preorder customers before Christmas...

The other night, my husband was putting my 2 year old daughter down for bed. Her night time routine includes reading a book so she grabbed the book, Press Here and they read it in English and translated it into Hmong. They turned to a page where there was a blue dot, red dot, and yellow dot all in one line.My husband pointed to the blue dot and asked our daughter, "Nuav yog xim dlaab tsi?" (What color is this?)She replied, "Blue!"He asked, "Lug Moob neb?" (What about in Hmong?)She thought about it for a moment then said, "Xav!" (Blue!)"Good job!"My husband then pointed to the red dot and asked her, "Nuav yog xim dlaab tsi?" (What color is this?)She replied, "Red!"He...

Hmong Children's Book Update #4

We received our 2nd set of book samples, updated some of the colors one last time and now we have what we want! We've sent the FINAL digital files to our printing company and have given them the approval to send the books to the printing press for mass production! We decided to go with the glossy finish for the moisture protection as well as helping to make the colors pop a bit more. I think you'll like it when you see it! Our production timeline is looking very good. It'll take a few weeks for them to produce and ship the books to me but as soon as I receive them, I'll get them packed and ship them out...
