Hopeful messages for young people from the kidlit community 

EDITED: Please note that Jarrett has asked the kidlit community use #hugsfromkidlit instead of the safety pin hashtag.

I am so moved, browsing through all the #kidlitsafetypins posts on Twitter. I've created some as well; click on any image below for a printable version. To teachers and librarians: as Kate Messner said, if this is something you plan to share with students, please do also take the time to talk about what it means to have someone's back when it comes to fighting bullying and bigotry. See Kate's post here.

Click on any of the images below (I'll be adding more over the weekend) for a print-ready version.

I absolutely love this. Your work is inspirational. I've followed you for awhile. I'm currently self publishing my picture books through Simon and Schusters self publishing division (Archway Publishing) and would be honored if you took a look at my one manuscript. I feel like you would be inspired by how it gives children a voice...please let me know either way :)
