New book "reaches children about diversity: grades K-3.

Linda Meyer, author of the new children's book, The Kid in My Closet (available January 2009 through Book Publishers Network at: www.cottagelanebooks.com and in bookstores nationwide) believes in the power of teaching children about diversity at a young age.

The Kid in My Closet is a new spin on the "there's a monster in my closet" story. In Meyer's book, the young monster is terrified by an "ugly" little human boy who pops out of his closet.

Meyer's goal is to instill a sense of understanding in children through celebration, respect and the exploration of other cultures--without being preachy. The Kid in My Closet shows children that friends come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
