Personalized Books to Solve Underrepresentation in Children’s Literature (Keepsake Tales)

“When you look at the, the children’s literature market today, you see large groups of children that are excluded. When you’re not able to see yourself in a children’s book, it has major consequences on your view of your own value, your self esteem, your place in society.”

Michael Vaggalis from Keepsake Tales is on a mission. He wants all children to be able to see themselves – literally – in children’s books. It’s an amazing purpose, but is it a scalable business model?
