As an exchange student in Asia 35 years ago, I realized that although I was reading books about other cultures, few outside the United States were even aware that African-Americans storybooks existed.
As a mother of three, I wanted to share books about our home life with my friends from China, Japan, and Argentina (to name a few) but I couldn’t find many in their languages.
Censoring in China made it even harder because most thought of African American culture as only rap music or violence, stereotypes.
This is why I have made it an effort to publish and translate storybooks with positive main characters and stories that resonate with families around the globe.
