Did you know that in 2017 one in every three books sold in the UK was a children’s book? And did you know that only one percent of those books featured a person of colour as a protagonist?
In this episode of #Kidtech David Stevens, co-founder of Knights Of talks all things kids’ book publishing and (the lack of) diversity. David, who has over 15 years of experience in children’s content with Penguin, Scholastic and Brown Bag Films, also discusses why Kindle doesn’t work for kids, and how he’s keeping kids reading in an era of disruptive technology.
