Greg Hardin: When I Grow up, I Want to be a Jayhawk

Greg Hardin utilized Kickstarter to fund and publish his first self-initiated children’s book titled, When I Grow Up, I Want to be  Jayhawk.

The book is officially licensed by The University of Kansas and is  about an enthusiastic young Jay who has big dreams of becoming a Kansas Jayhawk. It’s a lighthearted rhyming celebration of the history and traditions of The University of Kansas, it offers an exciting preview of college life, and it also celebrates the value of higher education.
