There is such a need for Godly picture books for children! When our sons were young, we noticed how the secular, well-done picture books would usually outshine the simpler Christian picture books out there. Now that we are doing books, we have a clue why. The upfront costs of getting beautiful, detailed paintings for each scene (involving fees for the artist and scanners, including much time and work for the people working on the book to coordinate and oversee these processes) are very high, and it's very hard to sell the books at a reasonable price and still break even. That's why we need to fund-raise, sell advance copies, etc. As far as we know, we are the only publishers of Messianic children's picture books. We appreciate your prayers and possibly your support, that this project would be funded so all the steps can be taken to get 1,000 copies printed (another $6,000 approximately).
Donations can be sent to the Messianic Family Publishing, 553 Irving Place, University Park IL 60484. Please make any checks out to Shalom Ministries - this is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
We are also offering a big sale for anyone who buys an advance order of a case of 20 books. We would sell a case for $250, which is only $12.50 a book.
