This month, Riley Weber, has made most of his books available in full color paperbacks through Amazon. Previously, his books were only available as an eBook, until now! Some of Riley Weber’s children’s books that are now available on Amazon in paperback are:
Today I launched my first Kickstarter project for a book that I am working on called “The Summer Santa: Christmas in July.” The goal for my project is only 10 dollars, but the sky is the limit.
My house caught fire a week before Christmas, and I penned this children’s story.
“The Summer Santa: Christmas in July” is about Santa coming to the rescue of a small town from a wildfire, to save all the toys that he’d given to the children in years past for Christmas.
Santa becomes one of the hotshots and lends a hand to help fight a forest fire, at the request of a young girl, who’s toys are at risk of being lost in the approaching fire.
I live in the Western United States, where there are dozens and dozens of wildfires, many of which are out of control for days, destroying hundreds of acres and homes. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a little help from ol’ Saint Nick and his magic red dust, to help fight the fires?
I have written and illustrated a handful of other children’s books, including an Amazon best-seller, Tongue Twisters for Kids, which has been a number one free children’s Kindle book on Amazon.
Funding of my project will go towards purchasing basic art supplies required to illustrate my book like some art paper and some economical paints.
Stretch goals reached would allow me to buy better quality art supplies, ISBN’s for my book, professional editing, a better more interactive book app, more marketing options, and a supply of actual books to sell.
Check out the Kickstarter and help me reach my goal.

What are the benefits of learning sign language?
• It’s growing in popularity. American Sign Language (or ASL), is the fourth most studied languages in colleges and universities in the U.S.
• Bilingualism is a great brain booster. It enriches and enhances your cognitive processes, helping you to become a better problem solver, a more creative thinker, a better listener, and you can obtain greater academic achievement! Knowing another language also promotes cultural awareness, literacy, and other intellectual benefits.
• Communicate with deaf babies. Speech is a medium. It is imperative that deaf babies are exposed to natural language (i.e. ASL), within the first two years of life.
• Sign language is beautiful! People find sign language unique, fascinating, graceful, and expressive. It is difficult to learn all the signs, but the experience is all worth it and fulfilling.
• Fingerspelling helps kids and students learn how to spell a word letter by letter. It can also help a young person learn to count using ASL numbers.
• Appreciate literary arts. Visual-spatial language is filled with cinematic devices, rhymes, rhythms, movements, and more.
• Sign language is used to communicate with some animals such as some chimpanzee’s and gorilla’s.
• Sign language is also used as a profession. Knowing basic sign language can be useful for firefighters, police officers, and other civic servants, as well as scuba divers, stock traders, and more.
• You can talk with sign language from a distance or in a quiet or loud setting and be understood.
• Develop cultural awareness and language competency!

“I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,” by Riley Weber is available now on Amazon and Barnes and Nobles
Written mainly from the hippo’s perspective, “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” is an original Christmas story, by best-selling author and illustrator, Riley Weber. On Christmas Eve, after getting some fresh air outside, Henry the hippo, who loves Christmas, see’s Santa’s sleigh come and land on his roof. Curious Henry decides to take a peek inside Santa’s sleigh, when he suddenly hears Santa coming back up the chimney. Not wanting to get caught, Henry the Hippo makes a quick decision to hop inside Santa’s bag full of Christmas presents to hide. That is where Henry’s real adventure takes off. Away Henry goes, on Santa’s sleigh, hidden deep inside his big bag full of presents.
Half a world away, a kid that’s been very good, named Sterling, wishes he could get a real hippopotamus for Christmas. Little does he know, Santa might just have an answer for that Christmas wish, and he doesn’t even know it yet.
Kids will enjoy this original Christmas story, with its Christmas themed, cartoony illustrations, by Riley Weber. This book is not based on the song, “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,” sung by Gayla Peevey.

Christmas also means spreading the affection of our heart into the lives of others & bringing in pleasure & cheers. Christmas is a perfect time to say love & good wishes for those we care about. May this Christmas be so special that you never ever feel lonely again and be surrounded by loved ones throughout, as did this hippo, who made a young boy’s Christmas dream come true!
