Just in time for the first week of back to school.

Sharing this new book trailer for our book, The Day You Begin released today and written by National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, Jacqueline Woodson. It is inspired by a poem in her New York Times bestselling memoir Brown Girl Dreaming. “There will be times when you walk into a room and no one there is quite like you”. There are lots of reasons to feel different. Maybe it’s how you look or talk, or where you’re from. Maybe it’s what you eat or something just as random. Whatever it is, it’s not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody knows you, but somehow you do it.

This book celebrates the bravery it takes to go forth even when you feel like an outsider. Sometimes, when we reach out and share our story, others will be happy to meet us halfway.
