About the publisher

The gratitude publishing house was founded in 2019 by the actress, speaker and author Dayan Kodua. It stands for communicating diversity and empowerment through stories and is one of the few publishers that exclusively publishes books with BPoC heroes. By identifying with these diverse heroes, children and young people of all backgrounds should be encouraged to discover their own potential. In this way, gratitude Verlag actively contributes to a diverse German literary landscape and a positively developing society.

At the same time, gratitude Verlag would like to help BPoC newcomer authors and illustrators gain more visibility. Because it is difficult to gain a foothold in the literary world as a person who has been part of the white majority society since birth, for BPoC authors and illustrators it means a completely different kind of struggle and requires a different kind of courage to achieve the same goal. Gratitude Verlag recognizes this and wants to give precisely these people the opportunity to reach children and young people with their words or pictures.
