On this episode of Reading with Your Kids we celebrate healthy habit and diversity with Dr Rachel Wellner and Erin Danelle Russell. Dr. Rachel Wellner is the author of the Doctoroo #PictureBook series. Doctoroo is a marsupial doctor who travels the world helping animals and children. Dr. Wellner tells us she created Doctoroo to teach kids important health lessons in an engaging way. The books take readers on magical medical adventures while promoting preventative healthcare. Jedlie and Dr. Wellner talked about how parents can use the books to start important conversations about health with their kids.

Erin Danielle Russell also joined us to celebrate her new #PictureBook Seoul Food. Seoul Food tells the story of a biracial girl who creates a meal celebrating both her black American and Korean American heritages. Erin explained that the book was inspired by her own mixed-race background. She wanted to write a story that her future children could relate to. Erin and Jedle talked about the value of exposing kids to different cultures through food. They also talked about the importance of books that allow children to see themselves represented.
