I admire your work, your passion and your persistence - and I am superhappy to see the amazing response. You're a great role model (not only) for me. Thank you very much!

Wishing you all the success. So wonderful to see this come about and to know that in the future so many little girls and boys will see themselves reflected in the books they read and it be normal. So proud!

Alec Grant 10th January 2019

This is a great project. I have struggled over the years to easily find books for my children. Hopefully this will help make the change

Rhiannon Tripp 9th January 2019

I’m a children’s bookseller who is constantly frustrated by the lack of diversity in kids books. This project is incredible and so so vital.

Rachel Pattinson 8th January 2019

Please come to Newcastle! I work with Seven Stories / Newcastle University / children's libraries in the North East and I'd love to help make this happen - get in touch :-)

Danielle 8th January 2019

Aimee and David, I remain in awe of everything you do. I'm so very proud of you and I'm thankful for all the children whose lives you're going to transform. I wish I had an Aimee and David growing up.
