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.

Brandylane Publishers, Inc. logo Brandylane Publishers, Inc.

Brandylane is a small, independent press, founded in 1985, that publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, and children’s books. 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. We are especially interested in manuscripts that teach, promote, and encourage understanding, tolerance, and peace; seek to improve the lives of people and communities in the U.S. and around the globe; promote environmental preservation; and promote and teach health and wellness.

Under our cooperative arrangement, we invest a portion of the publishing costs and offer a stepped royalty structure from 30% to 60%--higher than the industry average. One distinguishing feature of our program is that our marketing effort includes a one-year launch, followed by two additional years of promotion through our social media, website, our seasonal genre, and subject matter email campaigns, and continuous support from our PR team.

Brandylane has been defined by excellence for over three decades, and we distinguish ourselves by producing meaningful, memorable, high quality books, and by being accessible and providing unparalleled personal support to our authors. If you choose to publish through Brandylane, you’ll discover quickly that we work hard for success in a highly competitive marketplace. We can assure you that the books we publish under our traditional and cooperative arrangements are comparable to the quality of design, production, launch and distribution offered by the major publishing houses, and will give you the best possible chance for success.

Too many beautifully written books are rejected on a regular basis because the submitting author doesn’t have a strong enough author platform.

The barriers for authors are getting higher and the publishing industry less discerning and more unscrupulous.

By operating a hybrid publishing model, Cranthorpe Millner can invite authors to publish with us based on the merit of the manuscript alone.

Atmosphere Press logo 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.
