Goo and Spot Books are on a roll today! Our submission for the #Weneeddiversebooks was posted today over on Official site of the #WeNeedDiverseBooks Campaign We need diverse books is a call for publishers to print books that feature characters that don’t always fit a certain mold.
When Catherine and I worked on this book one thing we both strongly agreed on was the importance to have multicultural, multiracial characters, my own two little girls are the perfect blend of Mexican-Japanese. However our proudest accomplishment is in having included a character in a wheelchair a touching request by the brilliant artist Catherine Toennisson
I am so happy to be a part of the call for more diverse books, I am sitting at my computer grinning from ear to ear and in near tears! We are doing it! With your support we are making our goals come true, we will make it in the children’s book world- thank you!by
