THE POWER OF LOVE BOOKS
OUT OF 3400 NEW CHILDREN'S BOOKS EACH YEAR, 400 FEATURE A CHARACTER OF COLOR- THAT'S ONLY 11%*
"Every child deserves to see themselves in the literature. I want to make sure there is a book showing diverse main characters. It's important to send the message- all careers, including meteorology and TV broadcasting are attainable options."
Author, The Meteorologist In Me
* According to The Cooperative Children’s Book Center
WOMEN MAKE UP HALF OF THE TOTAL WORKFORCE, BUT ONLY 29% OF SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING WORKFORCE.*
"One of the things that I really strongly believe in is that we need to have more girls interested in math, science, and engineering. We’ve got half the population that is way underrepresented in those fields and that means that we’ve got a whole bunch of talent…not being encouraged the way they need to.”
-President Barack Obama
* According to The National Girls Collaborative Project
