Author Spotlight: Celebrating Diversity

Hi again!!


I just love writing about new authors and their work! The Author Spotlight is truly a project I love doing! Support is very important in the writers/author community. I have a wonderful author to introduce you to as well as her book!




As I've mentioned before, the Author Spotlight Project had a revamp this month. The second author spotlight this month is Author Candice Jones. Her spotlighted children's book is called "Where Are You From?"


Author Candice's book explores the topics of belonging and identity! Her book depicts diverse Canadian young characters aware of where they are from and their origins. Diversity is not only discussed in this book but also celebrated, showing young readers the importance of representation and encouraging positive associations to diversity. This book also includes questions to lead discussions with kids and students. I really love when students can share and join in on the celebration of diversity, identity and belonging! A fantastic book to read with young kids and students. Diversity is good and should be embraced and celebrated!
