Kids Book News for 2016!

Deanna Cook

Now that we are a few months into the year, I’ve got some big news to share. I’m happy to report that I have two new children’s books launching this year. Horse Play is at the printers now and will be published in May. And Let’s Play Farmers Market Activity Book will be released in October 2016. Like all my books, these titles are packed with colorful photos, hands-on projects, and lots of creativity for kids.

On top of my work as an author, I have an exciting new part-time job as a children’s book editor for Storey publishing, the wonderful publisher of my books! I will be acquiring new hands-on activity books that teach and inspire kids to explore, learn, cook, grow, and get creative. 

Writing and editing books for kids is a dream job. I get to poke around bookstores, libraries, classrooms, and kitchens looking for inspiration for new books and formats. I enjoy talking to teachers, kids, and parents about the types of non-fiction books they like to read. Speaking of which . . . If you have any favorite activity books on your bookshelves, please write to me. I’d love to hear about why you and your kids love them!

I'm looking forward to inspiring even more kids in the kitchen, in the classroom, and at home through books I write—and edit—in 2016 and beyond.

Thanks for all your support and hope to hear from you! 


P.S. Did I mention that Cooking Class is now it it’s 5th printing?! It was also picked as one of the best books of the year by NPR. Feeling grateful!
