Little Pickle Press recently announced a name change. The new name? March 4th.
Since the beginning, the mission of Little Pickle Press was to “create media that fosters kindness in young people and to do so in a manner congruent with that mission.” Otherwise, to proceed in kindness and generosity of spirit to promote kindness and generosity of spirit. Their hope is that this new name will reflect this.
Not that the name Little Pickle will entirely disappear. It has been encorporated into one of the publisher’s three imprints. These are LIttle Pickle Stories for ages 0-10, Big Dill Stories for ages 11-14, and Relish Stories for readers aged 15 years and older.
But why March 4th? Because it is a declaration. March 4th plans to meet the challenges facing our society by producing an increasing selection of stories and products that not only engage and entertain but also inspire the development of strong character.
