We were contacted about a month ago from a publisher who is writing a book on sugar gliders geared towards grades 1-4. They have requested to use many photos from our gallery for this book. many of the photo owners have been contacted and given permission to use them. There is one photo I have not been able to get in touch with the owner and I will not grant permission for them to use since it is a picture of a child with gliders.

With that being said, I will be creating a gallery forum for anyone who wishes to give permission for the photo to be used. The photo will need to have your child with gliders in it such as this one that will be in the book.
http://www.glidercentral.net/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=103232

this is the other photo they wanted, but I cannot get in touch with the owner

http://www.glidercentral.net/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=29129


The publisher may only chose one photo out of all of them, but you never know it could be yours. I ask that any photos entered have a small caption with it. If the publisher who is Mitchell Lane Publishers chooses your photo, I will contact you for further permissions and details. We need to get this going and hope to have the photo chosen by the end of the weekend.

Bumping up. We will only run this opportunity for a few more days. If photo is selected, credit will be given to the owner. We should also be able to obtain a copy of the book for the one chosen.

I take it you are only looking for kids with actual gliders type pictures and not just gliders in general?

This is not a book that GliderCENTRAL is publishing. It is a project that someone approached us about asking if photos could be used from our gallery as well as asking for our input on some of the information that is being put in the book.

There are other books out there as well as information on the net making it seems as if gliders are the perfect family pet.

If we do not submit the pictures they need for the book, I am sure they have other sources.

Most of the books are outdated now. Peggy's book is probably the most recent written but is geared for adults. It would be nice to have one with the correct information that children can understand.

This is a book to be used as a stepping stone to teach them about gliders. I am all for introducing and teaching kids early about stuff like this. Earlier education can and may cut down on the increasing numbers of unwanted, neglected, poorly treated gliders we have seen increasing over the past few years.

Honestly I am getting tired of hearing the you are to young speech. Why not teach them while they are young as they are like a sponge and will learn. I would say a large portion of glider owners were impulse buyers who had no idea what they were doing. Why is that better then teaching kids early? At least a child will listen unlike many adults who act like spoiled children and will not listen.

I completly agree with your statement Eddie. I was just pointing out what I think she meant.

I'm all for children learning... smile
I hope that the book points out all the facts wink

Will we be able to know the publisher and the name of the book when it comes out? I'd love to get a copy for my little sister. smile

As stated in my first post, the publisher is Mitchell Lane Publishers and they can be found here http://www.mitchelllane.com/

I already have a pdf of the book, but will not give the name of it as it could change. We definitely will let everyone know when it is about to come out which I think will be around March or April.

I don't think kids shouldn't be able to learn about gliders... I actually think that part is great. I think the part where they have a bedtime is a bad part roflmao

I think teaching the kids when they are younger is a great idea. My two children are 11 and 14. They each "have" their own gliders. I do food prep, but the kids have to help me with everything else, including bonding and tent time. I realized yesterday what a great experience it has been and the knowledge my children have gained from it. Yesterday, my daughter had some friends over and the friends wanted my daughter to get the gliders out of their cage. My 11 year old said no, and then correctly explained to the other kids why you should not stress out the gliders with a lot of kids jumping around and how the gliders are sensitive to smells and new people. I was so proud of her while I listened to her explain to the other children about taking care of gliders and their needs.

A book for younger kids is a great idea!

My four children (now, ages 6,9,10,12) are wonderful with my gliders. They have been involved with care, feeding, play time, and even toy and pouch making since I got my first ones years ago. I would trust anyone of them to care for my gliders before I would an adult in my absence. I think the book idea is great to start teaching children correct information about gliders!

If you want to add to it you can. I will leave it open for a bit.

I actually have a pdf of the books last last draft. I wont let that out as things may change. They have done a good job and you will need to get the book when it comes out around May to see the info, sorry.

I was reading this thinking of Chrissy's photo with the babies. I always loved that one.

And

Funny this can up. Greg my 8 year old told me this last week a pair of my gliders is now his! We will move the cage in his room this coming week smile and i will watch like a hawk.
