ON TOP

A 24-hour book for kids

ON TOP,  a day-by-day book for 7-12 year-olds, is a series of 365 short essays. The daily reflections are designed to bolster morale as well as social awareness.  Emotions such as insecurity, jealousy, competition, peer pressure, fear of the unknown, etc., are laced with humor and familiarity as well as illustrations based on "The Upperwestsiders," a cast of characters Rosalinde features in several of her books.

ON TOP breaks new ground. Popular as 24-hour books are for adults, there is nothing out there for kids. For what it’s worth, it will certainly encourage the habit of daily reading!

ON TOP essays touch on issues that affect children everywhere. ON TOP will hopefully create an enlivening cross-section of opinions, reinforcing the premise that nobody is alone out there, that there are plenty of other kids with whom to identify.

MEET EDDIE...

Eddie lives in New York City.  He goes to school right next door to his apartment building.  He knows the best pizza, the best Chinese take-out and the best toy store—the one on 72nd Street. He knows all the subway stops on the # 1, #2 and #3 lines. He is a regular at the Central Park Zoo; he and his mom take his cousins there all the time. Eddie is surrounded by siblings. It’s just that none of them are his.

ONLY ME, a chapter book for K-2, is a heartwarming flashback to when Eddie and his pals were in kindergarten. It picks up where his best friend, Zack the cat, hasn’t been around for play dates, since he’s busy helping his mom with a litter of six new brothers and sisters. 

  In Eddie’s building lives Big Boy Ryan, also an only child.  Eddie worships him, but Big Boy Ryan can’t be bothered; Eddie is too little, and besides, he can’t fly.

And then one day after school, the big kids grab Eddie’s vortex and throw it way up into a tree, landing in the middle of a nest—surely a problem bigger and taller than anyone!  

Big Boy Ryan hears the commotion and comes to Eddie’s rescue. They swoop into the canopy, collect the vortex and continue on for some heightening and enlightening conversation. Hmm, maybe being an “only me” isn’t so bad after all.
