Amanda Gorman, best known for reading her poem “The Hill We Climb” at President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January, just released her new children’s book titled “Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem.” It’s described as a “lyrical picture book” by the publisher and is illustrated by Loren Long, who also illustrated former President Barack Obama’s “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters.”
