Colorado Springs, CO (February 1, 2021)
Christian fiction author, Brock Eastman, has announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund his latest children’s book, Afraid of the Light. The book is about overcoming fear through understanding another person’s viewpoint. Our world is made up of diverse viewpoints, but that doesn’t mean we need to fear views different than our own. We can learn to understand what others see, how they see the world, and embrace their diverse views. We can grow our empathy toward others and begin to bridge fractured relationships, uniting together, and becoming stronger.
“This story started from my journey as a dad, trying to help my children overcome their fears of the dark or the monster in the closet. And as I told my children this story, it began to develop over the next ten years. The story became richer and deeper, and now with where the world is, it can’t wait to be told anymore. Now is the time for Echo and Grey to show the world, being different, thinking different, and looking different isn’t an obstacle to friendship, it’s a catalyst for growth and strength. We can overcome any obstacle or fear when we put aside our differences and work together.” —Brock Eastman
About the Book
Afraid of the Light was designed to keep the attention of kids of any age. The vibrant full-color illustrations can easily be shared while reading aloud to a group. Yet the book is small enough for a child to hold and enjoy at bedtime.
