It can be hard finding great children's books right? I think I found one. I love books with a positive lesson.

This is what happens when you don’t have a diverse marketing team and by diverse I mean black people. I’m sick of people using diverse as a catch phrase […]
while it's great to put two faces side by side and ask the question 'who would you hire?' maybe the question should be 'who would you hire full-time, for an executive role?'
So as #woke individuals, I am going to assume we all understand the problems with representation, sexism, racism etc. that Disney has. Yes they’ve made efforts and strides towards being more inclusive, but even those efforts are fraught with problems. It’s fantastic that there’s a black ‘princess’, and maybe I shouldn’t read too much into it when the little madam […]
