This week Sarah chats with Lauren Ranalli, author of The Great Latke Cookoff about the importance of diversity in children's books. Lauren shares how she started writing her book after she found the selection of children's Chanukah books lacking for her son. Lauren also shares some of her favorite resources for finding diverse children's books, a few of her favorite titles for various age groups and sheds some light on the process of self publishing, working with an illustrator and keeping up with a side-side hustle while working full time.
