"Growing up with dyslexia, I didn't see any representation of the struggles I faced in children's books so I decided to create the book. I hope children see themselves not only in the struggles but also the wonderful strengths of dyslexia as well."

"Inclusive books are one of the best ways for parents and educators to foster conversations about disability awareness and inclusion in their homes and classrooms. I believe books should be mirrors for children with disabilities to see themselves reflected, but I also believe they should be windows for children without disabilities to build empathy skills and gain greater perspective about life experiences outside their own."

"Good to be Me celebrates our differences and gives parents and teachers the opportunity to have an open conversation with their kids about disability, diversity, inclusion, body types, race, kindness and more. The goal of Good to be Me is to have kids feel comfortable and confident asking the questions that they have, instead of an adult explaining what they assume their kids are thinking.

"When I found out my daughter would be born with an upper limb difference, I wanted to do whatever I could to help make the world more inclusive, educated and empowering. So, I created The Capables, a new inclusive children's book series featuring a group of kid superheroes, all of whom have a difference or disability, and whose powers are activated through empowerment."

As a foster-adoptive mom, a birth mom, and a social service provider, I couldn't find a book for my own kids to see all of their confusing feelings, not only represented, but permissible. I also wanted their grownups to see why kids struggle and to create a healthy space for all the feels. This is the book I wish I'd had, and it's now helping non foster and adoptive families too!

"A Picture Book about Sensory Differences. The vibration in her feet when she runs, the tap-tap-tap of her spoon on the table at mealtime, the trickle of cool water running over her hands--these are the things that calm her jitters down. This book is for anyone who has ever felt the need for a wiggle, stomp, or squeeze! Available in English and Spanish. Accompanying reading and activity guides are available.

"I truly believe diversity is reality and that children need to know that our differences are what unite us, not divide us. I think this message is so important for kids to be exposed to until it becomes unconsciously integrated — until it becomes a truth they know deep down!"

When buying books for my nieces, it was difficult to find ones that showed little girls who looked like them. It was even harder to find books with Muslim characters who were just having fun and living their lives. I want little girls to feel that same excitement when they wake up in the morning and choose their hijab. And more importantly, I want them to feel that way when they explain their hijab to their non-Muslim friends. It’s my belief that representation is the most important step to understanding. A kind conversation can change strangers into neighbors. And a book normalizing hijabs can help children lessen that separation of “the other” and embrace what makes each other different!

"As an occupational therapist passionate about inclusion, I wanted to create a series that painted a vision of an inclusive world, one where all of our strengths are celebrated & we are all seen as valuable members of society. The Able Fables® series proudly represents characters with disabilities and diagnoses, empowering children to celebrate diversity and embrace inclusion. At the end of each book, readers will meet 10 kiddos that share the same disability, diagnosis, or adaptive equipment as the main character, sparking important conversations about disabilities, commonalities, strengths, and diversity."
