Today, author Meena Harris joins us for kids’ storytime to read from her new picture book, KAMALA AND MAYA’S BIG IDEA (illustrated by Ana Ramírez González) (Balzer & Bray/Harperteen). Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea is a beautiful, empowering book about two sisters who work with their community to effect change, inspired by a true story from the childhood of Meena Harris's aunt, US Senator and Vice-Presidential candidate Kamala Harris, and Meena's mother, lawyer and policy expert Maya Harris. One day, Kamala and Maya had an idea. A big idea: They would turn their empty apartment courtyard into a playground! Harris’s book is the uplifting story of children's ability to make a difference and of a community coming together to transform their neighborhood.
