Local Ethnic Costume Museum Attempts to Crowdfund $10K to Publish Children's Book

Posted By on Tue, May 6, 2014 at 2:00 PM

The amount of museums and specialty groups in Tucson never cease to amaze me. Gayle Castañeda, founder of the Castañeda Museum of Ethnic Costume non-profit organization, has decided to publish an all ages A-Z childrens book based on her extensive doll collections. Castañeda trying to raise $10,000 before Thursday, June 5.

The colorful dolls chosen for each letter of the alphabet are eye catching. We hope adults & children will peruse this book together, with comments flowing back & forth. The book can provide several levels of learning. On one page of the book there will be an ethnic doll, & on the opposite page there will be a colorful map & short, informative description of that doll. Ethnic dolls in folk or regional costume provide a fun way to learn about, enjoy, & respect other people different from ourselves. Hopefully our book's readers will feel that excitement! So far Museum funds have enabled us to begin preliminary work on the book.

The funds will be used for the printing, production, distribution and marketing marketing costs, according to the project page.
