Help Us Make This World A Better Place.

One kid at a time!

The Whole Human Race is a book with a powerful message that addresses multiculturalism, empathy, and diversity in a way that’s accessible to children while providing a poignant reminder to adults. The book has been widely distributed and the message that “we are all a part of what’s beautiful about The Whole Human Race” is as important now as it ever was.

Scroll to the bottom of this page to read from a few examples of our student-illustrated special editions!

Empathy

The core of our project focuses on empathy and strives to connect kids with a multicultural and diverse message of unity and compassion.

Community

From local to global, we encourage dialogue about similar and different cultures and customs and expand on what makes us unique and what makes us the same.

Creativity

Creativity is a powerful tool.  Using art, literacy, social studies, history and current affairs we challenge the thinking process with a hands-on, heads-in approach.

Fundraising

We offer the opportunity to raise funds for your school by selling your Special Edition of The Whole Human Race.  Contact us for details.

What is the Imagine The World Project?

In a nutshell, students create their own artwork for a book called The Whole Human Race©, by author Tim McFadden.  Over the course of the school year – the timing is totally determined by the school – students read and discuss the book and then create their own vision of it, becoming illustrators of their own Special Edition of The Whole Human Race.

Laura Seelie, K-8 educator and Project co-creator was the inspiration behind this exciting project.  It started with the idea that if we could get this book into the hands and minds of students everywhere, surely its message would resonate.  Our goal was to take this on with a non-profit mentality.  All of those who work on the project are volunteers.  All the design-time to create the print-ready layouts is done gratis.  We absorb the cost of the books we donate.  This is a free project for schools to participate in.  That’s how important getting the message out there is to us!

We are taking it slow but the interest and the results have been terrific.  We invite you to join us on a journey to Imagine the World!

How it Works

Info Kit

Our kit provides all the specifics of the project.  If you are interested, just contact us and we’ll send it right off!

Let's Go!

To get you started we provide a “quick start” guide as well as a comprehensive guide to get the ball rolling.

Manuscript

We send you the book’s manuscript (printed or PDF), laid out and ready to design around.  It’s in black and white and the text is already in position.

Lesson Plan

We provide a 4 Week Lesson Plan broken into Grades K-3 and 4-8.  The choice is yours to use it, rework it or create something that works for you.

Imagine!

Your kids will create artwork for the book and you/your school will choose the work for each section.

Illustrated By:

You submit the artwork to us, we lay it out and send back for your approval.  Once approved we send it off to print.

Helpers

We provide templates for School Announcements, Literacy Events, Art Shows and Press Releases.  If we don’t have it, just ask.

Support

We are there for you every step of the way.  Our Project Coordinators are available by phone, email or in person.

Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are an important part of our project.  There are several different ways to become one.  The first is what we call an In-Class Ambassador.  This is where students help facilitate the project in the school they are in by being the liaison with us.  The second is what we call our Community Outreach Ambassador.  Upperclass students reach out to schools in or surrounding their communities to get them involved in the project.  This is a great volunteer opportunity for Juniors and Seniors.

Our Community Outreach Ambassadors in Ohio actually inspired this program and are working with us to further develop it.  If you want to get involved please get in touch!
