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/.

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Sep 28, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean. The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Sep 28, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Sep 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Sep 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
