Seeking more diversity in children's literature, Karen started Gloo Books to publish stories that better reflect the world today. As a mother reading to her son, Karen noticed a lack of representation in kids' books, with most featuring white characters or animals. Believing values like inclusivity and compassion should be instilled through reading, Karen wrote her own book. She soon realized the lack of diversity stemmed from larger industry issues. Her vision expanded from a single book to launching a publishing company aimed at empowering young readers. Gloo Books promises titles that promote a more inclusive, just and compassionate future. Karen invites readers to join Gloo Books on its mission to enrich children's perspectives through a wider range of stories and characters.
