Amira Can Catch is all about inclusivity and acceptance. I can't think of a better message to share with the audience at the American Association of School Librarians, or with my readers and their families in general.

Christofora says, "Amira Can Catch is all about inclusivity and acceptance. I can't think of a better message to share with the audience at the American Association of School Librarians, or with my readers and their families in general.” He adds, "It's so important that we teach young readers to embrace those who are different from them.”
