Gorman, who gained international acclaim for her poem “The Hill We Climb” at President Joe Biden’s inauguration in 2021, said in a statement that she wrote the book “to show that though it might be difficult when we work together, even the smallest acts of kindness can lead to the largest positive change.”
Illustrator Christian Robinson, who has worked on books including “Last Stop on Market Street” and “The Bench,” said in a statement that “Amanda Gorman’s words offer us a much-needed balm, with healing properties of honesty, hope, and community care. This book was an honor to illustrate, and it’s my hope that it encourages young readers to be the change they want to see in the world.”
