to the courageous and creative universe of the Positively Adventurous League
Stripping away cultural confines in favor of freedom of expression for all children, the Positively Adventurous League series serves as a safe space for kids to learn about themselves, and as a learning space for parents and other readers who would like to be better equipped with language to help them engage gracefully with an ever-evolving society. Issues like independence, discipline, bullying, equality and empathy, to name a few, are explored through creative and playful stories in the series, helping to build problem-solving skills and having fun along the way.
The “PAL” kids nurture a culture of inclusion, supporting the development of healthy self-esteem in all children.

As Alone As Alone Could Be, a beautifully illustrated children’s book and the first title in the series, features “Sparkles” Clawhammer (they/them), a character blessed with bravery, energy and imagination to spare, and explores a common scene for children today, being stuck in the house with no one to play with.
As we begin to confront the constricting nature of our culture, and the sometimes confining roles it has set for us, listening lovingly to stories like these, opens up opportunities to create empathy, and supports our evolution with the times.
This can help us all rise to this momentous occasion in history, challenging societal norms and making the world a safer and more inclusive place for all people.
The book is currently searching for a publisher, but we have a limited edition of signed and numbered artist “proof” copies to share with our community and with folks who’ve helped us on our journey.
If you are a publisher, an educator, an activist or just need a little help in the money department right now, please click here to request your free download.
Rachel McIntosh, (she/they), is a Filmmaker, Designer, Creative Director, and Stop-Motion Animator. She resides in Brooklyn, NY and is currently in development of a Mr. Rogers meets Mary Poppins educational video series, which invites folks of all ages to learn and grow, through song, dance, digital effects and puppetry. She is a singer, a dancer, a musician and a lover of humanity, and believes children often don’t have the language to express themselves about the sticky stuff, and is excited that this series will allow her to speak to and address the sometimes hidden dilemmas of young children. We’re not just building a better world for our children, we’re building better children for our world.
