Soaring Kite Books Announces First Title, ‘Dear Mama’s Loving Arms’

Washington, DC, based independent children’s book publisher emphasizes diversity

(PRUnderground) September 16th, 2020

Soaring Kite Books is excited to announce the upcoming debut of their first title, ‘Dear Mama’s Loving Arms’. The new book is slated for pre-sale launch starting today, Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at 10AM EST.

Soaring Kite Books was founded in April 2020 as a children’s book publisher on a mission to emphasize diversity. Their books are being designed to represent BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) characters. 2019 children’s publishing statistics show that only 27% of children’s books include characters of diverse racial or ethnic backgrounds, underscoring the need for diversity in children’s books.

Ceece Kelley, principal author at Soaring Kite Books, wanted to share books with her son including contemporary releases with characters like him, and when she discovered the startling lack of such on the market, she decided to launch her publishing firm.

Now, the company has announced their first title.

‘Dear Mama’s Loving Arms’ tells a beautiful story about the power of a mother’s love from the perspective of a child. The main character, Baby, learns to cope with daily naps – and separation from Dear Mama – by joining Dear Mama in safari-themed dreams inspired by Baby’s toy giraffe, Raffie.

On Wednesday, September 16, 2020, the Kickstarter pre-sale campaign begins, giving people everywhere the opportunity to support Soaring Kite Books in their first book launch. Through this campaign, supporters will have exclusive access to limited edition book bundles and early supporter rewards, such as the custom “Raffie” giraffe plush (pictured).

“This book is a reminder to all mothers to stop and enjoy the bond we share with our children even when it is most challenging, like those days where all baby wants is to be held,” said the team at Soaring Kite Books.

“Soothing, lyrical and sweet, ‘Dear Mama’s Loving Arms’ is a lullaby of love, sure to resonate with anyone who knows the joys of holding their little one,” said author Glenys Nellist, an early reader of ‘Dear Mama’s Loving Arms.’

Soaring Kite Books looks forward to sharing their mission of providing uplifting diverse stories with people everywhere as the publisher continues to grow. More information about their book release can be found at https://www.soaringkitebooks.com/.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Sep 23, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Sep 23, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Sep 23, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
