Fun news! 🎈🎈✈️

I’m often asked if I’ve written a book (nope, not yet!), but I can now share that my husband, daughter, and I are characters in a new children's picture book that launches today on Amazon!

A local artist + illustrator, Nathan Clement, intentionally chose to feature an interracial family (us!) as characters in this fun story that follows a family enjoying a commercial flight. He also thoughtfully put both a woman and a person of color in the cockpit.
#diversifychildrensbooks #representationmatters #weneeddiversebooks

I received advance copies a few months ago, and after being asked to model for the book in 2016, it’s so fun that it’s finally available to the world today!

It is incredibly meaningful to see Asian faces as main characters in a children’s book that’s not specifically about Asian culture or history, diversity, or the Asian struggle. For my daughter to see herself represented in a book (literally, in this case!) — so important. #everydaydiversity

Would love for you to get this book in your homes, schools, and libraries! Perhaps your little one is an airplane lover or perhaps you want to add everyday diversity to your bookshelf. If so, this is the book for you!

There’s nothing in it for me if you buy the book, but I’d sure love it if you supported our friend, Nathan! Please buy and spread the word!

(And, yes, we have a son too, but featuring a family of three was easier than a family of four — think airplane seating — so our son contentedly sat out. 🙂 )

Review from Kirkus Reviews:
“From takeoff to landing, a look behind the scenes of a commercial flight. A family begins their journey with boarding passes in hand. The perspective then zooms back to reveal the ground crew. Bags are loaded, "the tug pushes the plane away from the gate," and the control tower gives the all clear. As the pilot lifts the plane off the runway, readers visit the family once again in flight. After a quick few pages showing food-service carts and the myriad ways folks entertain themselves in the air, the focus shifts swiftly back toward everyone who helps the plane land smoothly. Technical terms such as "yoke" and "landing gear" help youngsters understand the mechanics of a flight (and are further defined in a closing glossary) in addition to the scenes of a typical airport visit. Clement's crisp, clean digital images and bold angle placements resemble another transportation connoisseur, Donald Crews. The focal family is interracial, with an East Asian mom and white dad; the pilot is a white woman, and her co-pilot is a man of color. A wriggling, furry passenger that has been hiding in the daughter's bag the entire flight gives readers a sweet surprise ending. It's not the only first introduction to flight to be found, but it's an intriguing choice for the more technically minded.”



From School Library Journal:
“This picture book gives readers the inside scoop on the people and technology behind a successful flight. Text and illustrations work well together and would be an excellent choice for a storytime or in a one-on-one reading. Another strength of this title is the effort that went into making the text accurate. The title helps build curiosity and vocabulary in a child-friendly way. This is a highly recommended early STEM title for public libraries and schools, and a great way to prepare young children for their first plane ride.”



From Booklist:
“Taking a plane trip for the first time can be an exciting and a frightening experience for a child. In simple text, this book follows a family…as they board a plane, enjoy a smooth flight, then disembark for their destination. Brightly colored, naturalistic digital illustrations convey a great deal of information about how an airport functions…(T)his story could be helpful in calming any concerns a child might have about an upcoming trip.”

We wrap up #WomensHistoryMonth with the inspiring biography of Dorothea Lange, one of the founders of documentary photography. Kirkus Reviews calls it “An excellent beginner’s resource for biography, U.S. history, and women’s studies.” https://bit.ly/2UhmHnt Barb Rosenstock

As a young girl with a disability, Dorothea Lange saw the world differently from others around her. This lyrical biography reveals to readers how she used her keen observational powers to become an iconic American photographer.
