We’ve partnered with Con Todo Press, a publishing company dedicated to creating children’s books that celebrate Latino leaders and culture to help fill the gap in the publishing industry, where Latina/o/x stories are vastly under-represented, to talk about the importance of Latinx representation in children’s books.
We speak to Con Todo Press founder, Naibe Reynoso who shares how the 2016 election inspired her to shift from a career in on air journalism to create Con Todo Press and counter the misrepresentation of Latinos in the media and hostile climate for our communities that she experienced. Learn how children’s books are an important component to movement building and changing narratives.
Reynoso’s latest book “Courageous Camila” about a little girl who finds courage and inspiration from her mom’s immigrant journey, is out December 8th.
