More from K.A. Cummins
“Bold and Brave” is about a young autistic girl who wants to sing a solo in the school’s choir show. While a colorful pair of socks initially inspired the fiction story, it was my personal experiences as a woman and as a mother that most influenced it.
Stories often use words to draw readers into what a character experiences, but I wanted to do something different for this story. I wanted the illustrations to show readers the parts of the young girl’s experience that are often harder to explain.
For some, the smallest actions can take effort and courage, and their boldness and bravery doesn’t always show on the outside.
I hope “Bold and Brave” inspires readers, and provides an accessible insight into one autistic experience.
