“I think that, you know, if you go to a bookstore, you don’t see a lot of books for children of color in general. So I knew that I wanted to write books — I actually have a niece that’s 8 years old — and it’s important to me for her to see books with children that look like her. You know, not just her just any kid in general but I think that there are not enough books for us on shelves.”
