Tyler Gordon, The Boy Who Found His Voice

Rakestraw Books is super excited to be launching author-artist Tyler Gordon's new children's book, The Boy Who Found His Voice, on Friday, 28 June 2024 at 6 PM. During this very special event, Tyler Gordon will be joined in conversation by the San Ramon Valley's own Natasha Tripplett!

From teen activist and artistic prodigy Tyler Gordon comes a heartwarming picture book inspired by his own life about a boy with a speech difference who learns the power of self-expression through art.

There once was a young boy who had trouble with words. He paused and stuttered and stammered, which made school really tough. But with encouragement from his mom and a paintbrush in hand, he learns that finding your voice isn’t about being perfect—it’s about being true to yourself.

For fans of I Talk Like a River and Amanda Gorman, The Boy Who Found His Voice is a joyful and empowering testament to art, empathy, and having self-confidence even in the face of doubt.

Tyler Gordon is a teen painter and activist whose work has been featured in TIME and Essence magazines and on Good Morning America and ABC News. In 2020, he was awarded the Global Child Prodigy Award. He is the author-illustrator of the children's books We Can: Portraits of Power and The Boy Who Found His Voice. He currently lives in San Jose, California, with his family.
