Author Amanda Gorman captivated and inspired the nation during her delivery of her poem "The Hill We Climb" at the 2021 presidential inauguration, and she has done so once again. Change Sings: A Children's Anthem will leave readers knowing that anything is possible when we join our voices together. The book's poetic text and rhythmic illustrations lead readers along the main character's inspiring journey -- a true call to action for the youngest members of our society. The book's diverse characters let readers see themselves in the book and know that extraordinary change comes from the small actions we take together, as simple as making friends with those who are different from us, picking up trash, and helping others in need.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
