Out in December, Total Teen will inspire active living and positive self-image in young girls.
Rodale Books’ new children’s imprint, to launch this September, will publish fiction and nonfiction titles for young people of all ages, from infants to children to teens. Rodale Kids aims to publish between 35 and 45 books a year. These are books that will “encourage and motivate good habits when it comes to nutrition, fitness, mindfulness, and environmental responsibility.”
Rodale Kids’ first list comprises
10 books: the first, publishing September 5, is The King of Too Many Things, that challenges kids to remain mindful of the amount they ask for versus the amount they can handle. On September 19, they will publish two board books:
Mrs. Peanuckle’s Vegetable Alphabet and Mrs. Peanuckle’s Fruit Alphabet, which teach younger kids about healthy eating and the natural world.
October will bring The Positive Power Series, with the first book to be called I Am Thankful and the second called
I Am Kind. On November 7, comes The Fantastic Body: What Makes You Tick and How You Get Sick, and on December 26, Total Teen, a body-positive fitness book for teen girls. Coming out December 5 is Breathe Like a Bear, an illustrated collection of movement and breathing exercises for kids.
