For the last day of February and Black History Month, we are excited to feature Anna Gilchrist. Anna is an American author who aims to raise awareness on children’s rights through her children’s books. Her book series, Daffi and Friends, follows a little girl named Daffodil Grey.
Through Daffodil’s adventures, Anna provides uplifting stories with a powerful message.
Anna has always had a love of writing. After learning about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and earning her MFA in Childhood Studies, she decided to create meaningful children’s literature. Her first children’s book was The Extraordinary Day of Daffodil Grey, which she wrote and illustrated.
Anna’s publishing company, Sandfish Publishing, also brings together a diverse group of authors and illustrators who specialize in children’s books. Her hope is to inspire the children of today to become the empathetic leaders we need in the future.
The Daffi and Friends series teaches lessons based on articles from the UNCRC in a way that kids can understand and apply to their own lives. The series has received rave reviews. Anna uses these books to share themes of bravery, love, and tolerance –– all of which are so needed for our little ones!
As an author and advocate for youth rights, Anna is doing the incredibly important work of inspiring young minds and encouraging compassion.
