Illustrator, Jess X. Snow and I chat about the picture book, The Ocean Calls: A Haenyeo Mermaid Story. This beautiful book is about intergenerational bonds, finding courage in the face of fear, and connecting with our natural world.
And stick around for the end of this episode when we share picture books from Miranda Paul, Zack Shada, D.C. Cody, and Jennifer Black Reinhardt.
Jess X. Snow is a Chinese-Canadian film director, cinematographer, public artist, illustrator, and poet currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Jess is working to build a future where migrants and people of color see themselves as heroes on the big screen, city walls, and pages of children's books.
