My name is Jeff Felardo and I'm an economics professor at Eckerd College. Some friends and I have written a children's picture book about the ideas of tradeoffs and opportunity costs. We are in the process of having illustrations done and it is quite an expensive process. In order to offset some of these costs to keep the price of the book low, we are considering running a kickstarter campaign in order to raise the funds.
