Finally, I can announce some exciting news!
Last January, Lindsey Mead came to me with her idea to gather ten writers to write about the different ages of childhood, from one-year-old toddlers to ten-year-old tweens. We found eight amazing writers to help us in this endeavor, and the results were “This Is Childhood.”
Last summer, the editors of the esteemed Brain, Child magazine, Marcelle Soviero and Randi Olin, came to us with the idea of making the essays a book. They have since used the essays as a launching pad for a sort of journal of childhood where parents can write their own observations about the highlights of each age. It’s a little like a “baby book,” except it’s about our babies beyond their babyhoods.
We are beyond to excited that today, Brain, Child is launching the book, and you can order it right HERE.
Not only will you get all the essays from our series, written by Aidan Donnelley Rowley, Kristen Levithan, Nina Badzin, Galit Breen, Bethany Meyer, Tracy Morrison, Amanda Magee, Denise Ullem, Lindsey Mead, and myself — but you will also have a journal to record your own memories of these special, quirky, exasperating, and magical ages. We were also especially honored to have my friend and mentor, Yahoo’s Senior National Correspondent Lisa Belkin, write the book’s introduction for us.
Thank you so much in advance for supporting our labor of love. I can’t wait for you to see it!
