Philomel acquired the book after Executive Editor Jill Santopolo reached out to Chelsea after seeing her speak about noncommunicable diseases and her father Bill Clinton’s heart surgery during an appearance on The Daily Show
in September 2013. Chelsea said the book 50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth
inspired her as a child to get involved, and she hopes her book will do the same, and help kids get informed and get going on the issues they care most about.
