A side-sewn picture book rekindling family story time, "Kiley's Purple Hat" lets children discover colors, textures and creating something with their own hands; currently in production and will be available in time for the holidays

LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "Kiley's Purple Hat" by Jaxon Barnes, a beginning reader picture book ideal for ages 0 to 8, is available now for pre-order on kileyspurplehat.com, and is slated for release December 8, 2014, just in time for the holidays.

Kiley's story begins as she imagines and draws a lovely purple hat. Kiley and her mother set off on an adventure to the fabric store, where her mother helps her select and later create the hat of her dreams.

"Kiley's Purple Hat is a book on a mission to spark and inspire creativity and self-esteem in aspiring young artists, while encouraging reading and family time together," says publisher Gabrielle Chanel. "Books featuring little girls of color as positive role models are few and far between. We hope that with the publication of Kiley's Purple Hat, we can inspire all little girls to embrace their creativity and to pursue their dreams."

On the heels of the successful Kickstarter campaign that saw OSAAT Entertainment raise 113% of their funding goal, they will now have the opportunity to send copies of the book to selected schools and libraries as well as host an exciting book release party in the DC/Metro area. During the campaign, the project was selected as a Kickstarter Staff Pick and was recognized on the Kickstarter Tumblr blog for helping address the lack of diversity in children's books. More importantly, Kickstarter backers can bask in the glow of Kiley's success, knowing their support encourages reading while bolstering self-esteem in little artists.

In addition, several fashion and highly-ranked "Top Mommy Blogs" took notice of the book and were excited to share it with their audience. The Organized Dream had this to say: "There are so many children's books available today. My daughter has a bunch of books and I thought I've seen it all… This book is truly unique."

The book will be available in multiple formats including the handcrafted collector's edition (an excellent holiday gift) as well as a digital version for Kindle and an interactive iBooks version for iPad and Mac, where kids can paint their own version of Kiley's hat.

OSAAT Entertainment, publishers of print and digital books, have successfully published over 15 novels, the Pumpkin Bear Books language series as well as best-selling author Gwen Davis. For more information, contact Gabrielle Chanel at 484-857-7239 or email.
