New Children’s Books Series Breaks New Ground


LOS ANGELES - Lucky Red Press has announced the publication of the debut book in the Frankie & Her Little Palsa book series. Stir It Up is the story of Frankie, an energetic five year-old girl, with a group of pals who are always looking for new adventures. In Stir It Up, Frankie and her pals help a family bakery make a traditional Quinceanera cake. Through this story, they learn each step of the baking process, from measuring ingredients and mixing, to frosting the cake and the proper names for common baking tools.

Provided along with the entertaining story of baking a cake, complete with charming dialogue and mischievous mishaps, are recipes for children to try at home with their parents. The baking process is broken down into basic steps to facilitate easy learning for children and to be used as a parenting tool for adults.

Included in Stir It Up, as well as each book in the series, are helpful tips for parents and fun facts about the book’s subject matter. Stir It Up both teaches children the process of baking as well as gives parents a guidebook to use when participating in their child’s learning process. Ideally, these books are intended for children between the ages of three and five. However, the story and activities will likely appeal to any age group.

The idea for the Frankie & Her Little Palsa book series came out of author, Susan Mills recognition of what she considered to be a missing genre. She wanted to be able to teach her young children new skills while entertaining them, but when she went in search of a source to guide her, she came back empty-handed. It was then that she decided that she would not be the only parent that could benefit from such a tool and began brainstorming ideas.

The Frankie & Her Little Palsa series provides books on many different topics. The next book, Save the Watermelons, is scheduled for release in June and will illustrate how children can participate in weeding and gardening along side their parents. Future books will be about pet care, cooking, chores, tools, and siblings. Each book is complete with skill building activities and useful tips for parents.

Susan Mills is the author of the all-new children’s book series Frankie & Her Little Palsa / Frankie y Sus Amiguitosa. In January, Lucky Red Press published the debut book of the series Stir It Up, focusing on the joys children experience by baking, in both English and Spanish. The next book in the series, Save the Watermelons will focus on weeding and gardening. It is set to release in June 2007.
