If you are an ally, please go #REDinstead. Ditch the blue puzzle piece – we are not enigmas, we are human beings, our circuits are not ripped apart. We are not broken.
We need an equal ratio of males to females in EVERY SINGLE BOOK. We need dimensional, positive, and equal representation for multiple races in EVERY SINGLE BOOK. This isn’t a multi-cultural book. It’s just a book. This should be the bare minimum, not a book we have to actively market as an exception to the majority of books featuring white boys with trucks and white girls in tutus.
in case you’re wondering, I’m not going to try to make lemonade out of lemons.
I’m going to grow miles, and miles, and miles of lemon groves. I’m going to share them with all of you, and together, we’re going to make lemon tarts and lemon tea-cakes and lemon puff pastry and lemon haddock en papillote.
