As borders tighten and DREAMers await their future, there are children who need to find themselves in the books they read. Is having brown and black skinned characters in books enough? In the age of Trump and Time’s Up, how can bilingual and Spanish children’s books in the US make an impact in our society? Can they help create a world where borders cannot be closed off? Children’s book writers, illustrators, and publishers discuss why they create books that are geared towards a Latinx audience.
