Amanda Gorman to Publish Children’s Book ‘Something, Someday’ | FOX 4 Kansas City WDAF-TV

The presidential inaugural poet continues her message of hope and unity in her second children’s book

Nationally acclaimed poet Amanda Gorman has teamed up with award-winning illustrator Christopher Robinson to create a children’s book, ‘Something, Someday.’ The book, to be published by Viking Children’s Books this fall, seeks to give readers a message of hope and kindness in troubled times. “Something, Someday” will be the ultimate children’s book to inspire children to value themselves and one another – something that can never be too much on a young reader’s shelf.

In this article: “Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem” by Amanda Gorman, “You Matter” by Christian Robinson and “Knight Owl” by Christopher Denise.

What is ‘Something Someday’ about?

Amanda Gorman chose to write “Something, Someday” to show children how small acts of kindness add up to create meaningful change. As the first National Youth Poet Laureate and someone whose writing can be found everywhere from the Library of Congress to MTV, Gorman’s themes of hope, healing, activism and empowerment resonate with readers of all ages.

Christian Robinson’s distinctive collage-style illustrations have been seen in children’s books, on household items, and even on Sesame Street. He uses acrylic paints and collages in vivid primary colors to capture how children see and experience the world. He has illustrated books ranging from biographies of Josephine Baker and Nina Simone to the experience of a child visiting an incarcerated parent.

“This is a collaboration between two brilliant creators who I’m really excited to read and put into the hands of young readers,” says BestReviews book expert Ciera Pasturel. “In ‘Something, Someday,’ Gorman and Robinson teach us the power of hope and the possibilities for generous change.”
