SO excited to share this news:
Cecily Kaiser and Gabriella DeGennaro of Rise x Penguin Workshop have acquired my first book, HOW TO SAY HELLO TO A WORM: A VERY FIRST GUIDE TO GARDENING. Teresa Kietlinksi of Bookmark Literary arranged the deal.
It is such an honor to be invited to publish with Rise, an imprint founded to publish books for children aged 0-5 which share, in Kaiser’s words, “the common thread of empowering children to feel smart, capable, safe, and important. It is upon this foundation that children are then able to develop empathy, resilience, and compassion—an infusion of which our society so desperately needs.”
HOW TO SAY HELLO TO A WORM was inspired by Early Birds’ Garden Club, a preschool meet-up I founded at the Malden Community Garden. The Book is scheduled to be released spring 2022 Thanks to all who’ve helped this project blossom. More soon!
