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.

We publish under a traditional arrangement and also offer a cooperative track for emerging authors. We believe that books make a difference, that lives and the world are changed by the power of words and images, and that large publishing houses neglect a wealth of good writing.

250 copies • Partial manuscript.
Cranthorpe Millner operates a hybrid publishing model. This means, should an author pass our editors’ strict filtering system, we can offer different kinds of agreements depending on the author and the manuscript. With some authors, we work under a ‘traditional’ model, whereby we cover the full cost of publication and the author is offered industry-standard royalties (8-10%). To some authors, we offer what we call a partnership or contributory agreement, whereby the author is asked for a financial contribution so that we may share the risk and enter into a partnership together to publish the author’s book. In this case, the author receives around 60-75% royalties.
