Join Kanika and Vanessa each Thursday at 7 pm EST on Facebook Live for conversations with #ownvoices authors about their journey, what inspires them and what diverse representation in children's books mean to them.
With wellness on our mind this month, we thought we'd go back to a conversation we had last fall with author Jenny Delacruz. With a background in counseling and social work, she wrote "Momma, Can I Sleep with You Tonight? Helping Children Cope with the Impact of COVID-19" In this conversation, she shared some tips for supporting kids when dealing with difficult emotions. Join our conversation THIS Thursday at 7PM EST!
