Synopsis

Ryder is learning how to use her teeth for eating, biting food, and talking. She seems to find it challenging with getting excited or upset in class resulting in biting her peers when she is overly-stimulated.

During the witty play of words, Ryder is exploring how to use her words. The catchy word play allows educators, parents, and school counselors to focus on the importance of replacement of positive behaviors for supporting Ryder. She is learning how to work through her conflicts with her classmates.

This hilarious and descriptive setting of the preschool classroom has a turning point in the book with Ryder being able to reflect. Ryder the Biter has been written with the purpose of sharing the importance of social emotional development and promoting the importance of family discussions in a appropriate tone with the correct terminology.

Why support this book?

  • According to APA (2011), "Toddlers need adults' help with labeling their feelings and reacting appropriately to them; it is also recommended to not associate the term "bad" but rather what is "correct" or "ok" for the toddler."
  • Ryder the Biter introduces an new character, which is highlighting the introduction of school counselors and guidance counselors.
  • The biter and bitee, both require positive attention.
  • Ryder the Biter encourages open dialogue and a conversation starter for households.
  • The author has broad experience as a counselor in the field of social-emotional education.

Similar titles

  • "Teeth are not for Biting" by Elizabeth Verdick Free Spirit (2003) - This particular book is a board book which can be amazing for the young reader, but it does not focus on the story line of the character.
  • "Little Dinos Don’t Bite" by Michael Dahl, published by Picture Window (2013) - This is yet, another board book for the youth, but uses cool illustrations of dinosaurs, which can often times use their teeth. This can be a conflict of interest when teaching the youth not to use their teeth for biting other people. Ryder the Biter utilizes her quirky cast of peers, simple storytelling, colorful illustrations, and incorporating school counselor in the narrative.
  • "People Don’t Bite People" by Lisa Wheeler, published by Atheneum Books (2018) - The books are board books which are great for the little ones, however Brandi presents another fashion with more advanced language for students in elementary.

Audience

Charismatic and whimsical approach to Ryder, a preschooler, championing her ability to use her words versus biting her peers. This bridges the conversation for students, educators, caregivers, administrators, parents, and school counselors.

Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
