In 2020, ABDO Books will add four new titles to the beloved children series, Ana & Andrew, featuring siblings learning about African-American history and culture. In Going to Ghana, Ana and Andrew will travel to Africa, visit a slave castle on the Ghanaian coast, and learn more about their ancestors. The Magic Violin will explore the history of Frederick Douglass and his love for playing the violin. In The Perfect Pet, Ana and Andrew choose their first pet–and they give it a special name in honor of an African American sports legend. And perhaps one of the most anticipated additions, A New Baby–Ana and Andrew meet their new sibling!
Also in 2020, ABDO Books will release Sheroes: Real Wonder Women, a series designed to teach young readers about extraordinary women throughout history. The first four titles in the early readers nonfiction series explore the lives of Harriet Tubman, Joan of Arc, Cleopatra, and Sacagawea.
Christine’s first middle-grade work, Trailblazers: Martin Luther King Jr., will be published by Little Tiger Press/Stripes Publishing in 2021.
