Author Spotlights is an initiative to advocate for very talented children’s book authors who are creating stories that reflect a child’s experience; they include characters that look, talk, and act like them, their families, and their communities. These books can be self-affirming and build self-confidence, so it’s important to celebrate diverse books that reflect the races, ethnicities, cultures, and languages of children everywhere.
From the earliest stages of development, all children should feel confident in their own unique stories, and celebrating diversity is key to that goal. We believe storytellers are a cornerstone of childhood education and stories are the most powerful way to inspire young minds.
Storytime Crafts was founded with the goal of uniting communities to promote inclusive childhood literacy opportunities. We are dedicated to amplifying the voices and stories of diverse children's book authors and directing literacy resources throughout communities.
