Stephanie Wildman’s Journey Into Children’s Books

Stephanie Wildman’s Journey Into Children’s Books

After becoming an emerita professor, Stephanie M. Wildman of Santa Clara University School of Law has begun to author children’s books. Discussing her books, Wildman said:

“My work as a law professor emphasized racial, gender, and social justice. When I became a professor emerita to write children’s books, I brought that commitment to kidlit. I learned that animals are more represented as main characters in picture books than people of color. The good news is that the numbers are better than five years ago, though they still need improving. Representation matters for children of all races to see themselves in the world.”

Her books Brave in the Water and Treasure Hunt are available now.
