Want to know which market is the most progressive and positive, IMHO?

I often say that the most positive and progressive change occurring right now is happening in children’s book publishing. Case in point: This Little Environmentalist and This Little Rainbow (Love is Love) board books illustrated by Daniel Roode for Little Simon, and Baby’s First Kind Words illustrated by Hsinping Pan for Storey Publishing. These teach little children about climate, LGBTQIA+, and kindness. It makes me so happy.
