If you were to peruse the children's books published in the US every year, you’d be more likely to find stories about talking animals doing human things than you’d find stories about Black families doing family things. That’s according to the Cooperative Children’s Book Center. But that is changing, thanks to Denene Millner. Millner, a journalist, author, and TV host, has a new children’s book imprint at Simon and Schuster aimed at publishing stories by and about Black people.
