We’re excited to announce that Prepper Pete and Friends will soon be releasing a coloring book to help engage kids with learning about the importance of being prepared!
Our first book will be focused on coloring pages, featuring characters from our existing books, as well as our upcoming “Be Prepared: A Be Ready Book for Kids” (scheduled to be released later this year!).
The second book will include coloring and fun activities that are designed to teach and entertain. We’ve got quite a few fun ideas we think kids will absolutely love!
We’re also looking to hear from you! What are some fun ideas you may have (or that you’ve seen) in coloring and activities books that could help Prepper Pete teach kids about the importance of being prepared? If you give us something we haven’t already thought of and we use it… you’ll get a free copy of the book when it ships!
Stay safe and Keep Prepping!
I just has the honor and pleasure of an interview by James of Disaster Survival Network! If you want to hear about some background, my “why moment” for Prepper Pete, and a great discussion on teaching children all about Prepping… tune in for a bit!
As James echoes, “the importance of teaching our children from a young age about Prepping can not be stressed enough. If we teach our children from a young age it becomes a lifestyle for them and is nothing ‘strange’ or new.”

YOU can help us get the word out! That means helping keep our kids safe by preparing them for day-to-to emergencies they may face.
You might have heard of crowdfunding before – that’s when everybody chips in to fund something – and that’s exactly what we’re going to be doing with the next Prepper Pete book , “Be Prepared: A Be Ready Book for Kids!”
The goal? Fund the initial setup, illustration, printing, and a good chunk of advertising fees in one fell sweep!
Where do you come in? You’ll be able to participate in this campaign by funding anywhere from a very little to a very big amount. Each tier of sponsorship will net you something cool – an ebook, a book, an advertising opportunity, or perhaps just some good ole’ Prepper Pete swag. Tiers will be determined soon enough – let’s just say there will be a span and everyone will be able to participate.
The final goal? $10,000
If you’re like me… you look at that fee and think, “What the what?!” But remember – that includes mailing copies to many funding participants, bloggers, etc, an actual marketing campaign (which we’ve not done before), paying the illustrator, and much, much more.
As the author, I won’t see any payment from this amount… and I’m good with that. I’m more concerned with getting the word out to help keep kids safe. Besides, “Good things come to those who wait!”
The catch? We’re using Kickstarter – it’s all or nothing!
