Positively Publishing Kids is a multicultural kids book publisher. It was created out of a desire to address the lack of diversity in children’s literature and the lack of opportunities many children encounter.

After twenty years of rejection letters and some positive feedback, Dawn McLaughlin decided that she had received her last rejection letter. No longer content to leave her dream of being published in someone else’s hands, she decided to start her own publishing company.

She had the stories written but, no illustrations. Originally she considered working with other artists to illustrate the stories. However, this quickly changed when she started doing research and learned about the lack of diversity in kid’s books.

Working in Newark and Jersey City for six years at Big Brothers Big Sisters she had seen how the lack of opportunities had impacted the children. From her own life experiences she could relate to the lack of opportunities they face daily. With the intention of creating opportunities for others that often get passed over, she decided to combine the two things she loved, kids and books. That is how Positively Publishing Kids was born.
