The YAK speaks! Diversity in kidlit

I recently had the opportunity to contribute some articles and book reviews to The YAK, a magazine devoted to Education, Writing, Children’s Literature, and Speech Arts. Check it out here! In this issue, I take a look at some key recently-published and upcoming diverse titles in picture books, MG, and YA!


The Yak is published through The Bolton Academy of Spoken Arts (BASA), the largest speech arts school in western Canada. At BASA, we work one-on-one with kids to help them develop confident, capable, and empathetic communication skills in speech and writing. For more info about BASA click here.
