You can’t be what you can’t see – for children, stories play a fundamental role in illuminating things once unseen and recognizing subjects once taboo. Superheroes and everyday heroes, underdogs and activists come to life as our panel of writers and illustrators leads the charge to ensure diversity and representation in books for little ones.

Anda tidak bisa menjadi apa yang tidak dapat Anda lihat – bagi anak-anak, cerita memainkan peran mendasar dalam memberi gambaran mengenai hal-hal yang tidak terlihat dan mengenali subyek yang pernah dianggap tabu. Pahlawan super dan pahlawan dalam kehidupan sehari-hari, rival dan pejuang dihidupkan ketika panel penulis dan ilustrator kami mengemban tugas untuk memastikan keragaman dan representasi dalam buku untuk anak-anak kecil.
