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/.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Sep 24, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

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

Sep 24, 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...

New Sept. 11 exhibit stages the hunt for Osama bin Laden

Sep 24, 2020

NEW YORK — Declassified U.S. government documents and artifacts will be part of a new exhibit about the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden at the site of the New York terrorist attack he masterminded. "Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden" opens Nov. 15 at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a multimedia account of the mission that ended with bin Laden's death in Pakistan in 2011. With direct access to the operatives who led America's feverish post-9/11 hunt for the top terrorist, the exhibit presents a sort of whodunit drama with graphics, videos and the voices of the...

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Sep 24, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting. Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...

Cracks were found in a key structural part on 38 Boeing jets

Sep 24, 2020

Inspections of some older Boeing jets have turned up structural cracks in more than three dozen of them, raising a new safety issue for the company already dealing with two deadly crashes involving a newer version of the same plane. Boeing said Thursday that airlines worldwide have inspected 810 planes following an order from U.S. safety regulators. Of those, 38 — or 5% — had "findings" requiring repairs. Airlines are under orders to inspect certain Boeing 737 NG planes for cracking in a part that helps keep wings attached to the fuselage. Boeing declined to identify which airlines found problems,...
