Black Author Launches Book Series to Help Kids Deal With Pandemic Grief

Jenny Delacruz, Haitian author of children's books

Nationwide — Meet Jenny Delacruz, the author and publisher of Momma, Can I Sleep with You Tonight?, a therapeutic support book that helps children ages 3-7 to deal with change and grief in light of the pandemic. It’s available in English, Spanish, and French. Toward the end of the story, Jenny Delacruz, offers tips for parents and educators on how to communicate with children.

Jenny also wrote an award-winning series about the history of Haiti called Friday Stories: Learning About Haiti. This series is geared towards children ages 7-12.

She comments, “It’s the first children’s book that shares a Haitian’s perspective about my history. All of my books age-appropriately touch on real-world topics like grief, racism, classism, and colorism — subject matters that are often saved for adult conversations.”

As an author and a counselor, Jenny gives both children and adults a glimpse of the Haitian people and cultural heritage in a way that they will appreciate and remember. There you’ll find Haiti’s often ignored origins and cultural impact, including the fight for independence and the struggles afterward.

All of her books are available on Amazon and on CobbsCreekPublishing.com
