Writing, illustrating, and publishing a children's book is on the bucket list.  The idea for this book is to have this cute stuffed fox tell you what you're made of.  Not bones and flesh but emotions and how to deal with them.  I find that a lot of parents don't know how to properly educate their children on how to deal with their emotions.  Stuff like anger and sadness.  It's okay to be angry, as long as you deal with it in the proper way.  Same thing goes with all emotions.  
Lets take anger, for example.  I'll probably show the stuffed fox with a rip and his button eye hanging by a thread.  I want him to look like he just got the piss knocked out of him.  The narration will go something like this:  

It's okay to feel angry
and let it all out.
Use your words and be honest,
try not to shout.
Tell me what's wrong
and we'll find a way
To fix how you feel but
Hitting and kicking is never okay.
I know you're made of so much more than anger.
I love you.

I grew up in a rough household and "I love you" wasn't something we heard.  I thought this was the norm until I grew up and moved out.  I want this book to teach adults as much as it teaches the children.  It's okay to say "I love you".  It's okay to hug.  It's okay to make mistakes.  Everyone seems to have the yelling part down for their kids but I rarely see someone explain to the kid why what they did was wrong or why they're getting yelled at.  I see even fewer parents ask them how they think is a proper way to handle the emotion next time.  When people know how to properly rule their emotions, they become happier people.  We need more happiness in this world.  

If you're still reading this, I would love for you to comment so I can get your stories/input/ideas for the book.  

Good vibes and much luv ~~<3

After I've written and illustrated it, I'm sure I'll need some financial support for printing, proper advertising, copyrights, and all that sort of stuff that I have no idea how to do, lol.  Until then, I think I'll just keep playing around with how I want it to look.  The idea for this book hit me recently and I need to work out a lot of things.  For example, there's a ton of emotions that we go through.  Which ones are the core emotions?  I can't have a hundred page children's book xD  I guess, in short, I don't want to half ass this project like I half ass most of my stuff.  

Thanks a ton for your support, Mousehwolf!

The level of win here begs a better staring system on Inkbunny, so that it can get one hundred, ten star ratings, at least!
