According to 2018 statistics from the Cooperative Children’s Book Center (CCBC), only 10% of characters represented in children’s picture books were African American, 7% Asian, 5% Latinx, and 1% American Indian. Con Todo Press was created in 2018 to amplify the voices of underrepresented communities. They publish books that reflect a more balanced representation of women, Latinos, and people of color. Their titles have main characters of color and contain culturally relevant subject matter written by Latinx authors.
We LOVE their mission to produce books told from an authentic and relatable perspective that bridge the gap between communities of color and media.
