Thank you so much for tuning into our brand new podcast for #diversebooks4diversekids.

This week we have a special podcast for our Instagram Giveaway winner, Dr. Artika Tyner. Her incredible book, Justice Makes A Difference, is about a brave little girl named Justice who is inspired to change her community by advocating for equality. Justice was inspired by inspiring leaders she read about in books given to her by her grandmother. Justice feels the pressure of bearing a name that has such an important meaning and seeking ways to find how she can make a difference as a little girl. She bravely chooses to become her own superhero in a fight for justice so she can uplift her community through social change.

#Diversebooks4diversekids Podcast 2

The audience for #Diversebooks4diversekids is growing ya'll! I am getting flooded with authors inquiring how to be a part of this movement. I absolutely love seeing authors writing stories about unique children with bold voices.

These stories are all about empowering those who are different whether that's based on skin tone, having large ears that had been inevitably passed down, big crazy hair, or someone who doesn't have somewhere to call home.
