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 22, 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.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Sep 22, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Sep 22, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

The Latest: UN chief calls for 'maximum restraint' in Gulf

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The Latest on the tensions between the United States and Iran (all times local): 10:45 p.m. U.N.

Haq said the U.N. hopes all nations "will take steps to avoid" an escalation and confrontation....

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Sep 22, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
