My little girls and I went to the public library to pick out books. They randomly made a stack of 22 books. When I got home, I was happy to see that (ok, only 4/22) TWO of the books had a child of color as the main character and TWO had friends of different races. Still not one of the 22 had an Asian or Hispanic main character. So, we still have a long way to go in Children's literature being representative of ALL children, but at least it is a start!
Laura creates rich, vibrant paintings and woodblock prints, often using dream images and magical realism to convey meaning. Influenced by her Cuban/Latino background, Laura’s illustrations appear in national magazines, children’s publishing, book covers and posters. Her images are licensed by Joan Cawley Gallery, Ltd.
