The Dolly Gray Children's Literature Award made TIME Magazine! The article is linked here:
It is exciting to see evidence of the Dolly Gray Award's impact on children's literature! We agree with the author that there isn't enough literature that accurately portrays developmental disabilities, especially down syndrome. The work we do helps encourage authors, illustrators, and publishers to publish books that have high quality characterizations of individuals with developmental disabilities. Your active participation as an award panelist impacts the lives of children and youth with developmental disability.
A quote from Jana Stanfield:
"I cannot do all the good that the world needs. But the world needs all the good that I can do."
The work we are doing is good and making a difference! We encourage each of you to further spread that impact by sharing this article on social media and tagging @dollygrayaward.
