Ambie – Board Game Day Book
This book is adorable, and perfect for children of board games.
Ambie shares the journey that got her here, starting with “I like writing rhyming things”, singing made-up songs to her kids, and moving on to an ABCs of boardgames.
We love the art in the book from Rachel Kremer (best known for webcomic Semi-Coop) – and there will be many more real board games pictured in the final copy!
The Kickstarter will be launching July 18, with both board books and e-books.
