Tackling The Lack Of Diversity In Children’s Books

Broaden their horizons even before they can afford a bus/train/plane ticket to explore other cultures! Find out the obstacles and benefits of publishing a multi-cultural book.

My book, Cinderella Spinderella began as a spoken word story that I was telling to diverse audiences in Boston. When it came time to produce the book/ebook, we chose to use five different “seasons” of Cinderella and the Prince. When the ebook came out, someone asked why the story didn’t change for each Cinderella. My goal as an author and storyteller is to connect people with stories. What’s great about this project has always been that any family can find themselves in the tory.

Thank you for your comment, Mark! Children’s stories are family stories. It seems to make good sense to find your family represented in the stories you share with your children.
