Chelsea Clinton to launch children’s book series

NEW YORK (AP) – Chelsea Clinton has a lot of publishing plans – for her own books, and for books by others.

The Penguin Young Readers imprint Philomel Books announced recently that Clinton has a new picture story, Welcome to the Big Kids Club: What Every Older Sibling Needs to Know!. The book is illustrated by Tania de Regil.

At the same time, she will launch and provide introductions for a non-fiction chapter book series for kids ages six to nine, Save The …, about animal conservation.

“Welcome to the Big Kids Club is a reflection of conversations I’ve had with my kids and so many other kids about what it means to have a baby in the family,” Clinton, the mother of three, said in a statement.

“I couldn’t be more excited about this book and the newest Save The series. My hope is that young readers and their families will enjoy and learn as much from the books in this series as I have, whether about whale sharks, frogs or more animals that could disappear if we don’t all work together to save them.”

The Save The series will begin in September with three books: Sarah L Thompson’s Save the … Elephants, Christine Taylor-Butler’s Save the … Tigers and Anita Sanchez’s Save the … Whale Sharks.

Clinton, the daughter of former United States (US) president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, has previously written such bestsellers as She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World and She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History.
