Who Hops?

From the cow that doesn’t hop to the giraffe that doesn’t crawl, animals on brightly colored page after page offer up giggles galore and a delightfully silly look at the way some creatures do–and don’t–get around.

When the time comes to guess who hops and flies and slithers and swims and crawls, observant young readers just might know the answer!

Kindergarten Rocks

exter already knows everything there is to know about kindergarten. His big sister, Jessie, told him all about it. So Dexter is not scared. Not even a little bit. But his stuffed dog, Rufus, is scared. Actually, he’s terrified. But Dexter–er, Rufus–has nothing to fear: As he’ll soon find out, kindergarten rocks!


Little Chicken’s Big Day

“I hear you cluckin’, Big Chicken!” That’s the simple refrain that Little Chicken repeats to his mama throughout a typical day. But Little Chicken can be distractable . . . and when he wanders off and gets lost, the day becomes anything but typical. With subtlety and humor, this sweet little story sweeps through a wide range emotions using the simplest of language.
From husband and wife team Katie and Jerry Davis, this is a little book with a huge heart. The perfectly minimal illustrations and spare text belie the enormous message at its core: that with family, help is always just a cluck away.

“Every writer should have this tool!”

If a legendary editor and former Vice President and Publisher of Simon & Schuster Children’s Division told you that every writer should have a certain tool, you’d get that tool, right? Emma Dryden, founder of drydenbks, LLC is that editor, and the tool she was referring to is this guide, How to Promote Your Children’s Book: Tips, Tricks, and Secrets to Create a Bestseller.

This expanded second edition is packed with updates, new contributors and chapters, and info on new social media sites that didn’t even exist when the first edition came out. There’s a lesson on keywords, how to create teacher guides, viral blog sites, and more. If you want to learn how to get started in social media, why you need to be involved in social media, organizations to join, how to build your community, personal appearances (book festivals, school visits and more), resources to use as springboards to get your platform going, and even why reciprocity rocks online.

The real life exercises at the end of each chapter will get you motivated and started on your path to promote your book, and build your career. Countless authors, illustrators, and librarians contributed valuable pieces of advice to promote your book and support your career. There are resources, links, and videos.

As Emma Dryden said, “Every writer should have this tool!”
