Juanita Banks-Whittington is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate her debut #ChildrensBook "I Love My Daddy,"  Inspired by her daughter and husband, the book portrays the everyday moments of a little girl and her father. It highlights the importance of diverse representation in children's literature, aiming to reflect the experiences of diverse families.
Juanita emphasized the significance of children seeing themselves positively portrayed in books, stating that it helps them relate and explore different perspectives. She also mentioned the lack of diverse authors in the children's book industry and shared statistics that show only 39% of children's books in 2022 featured diverse characters.
Her own book, "I Love My Daddy," depicts relatable family moments, from morning hugs to bike rides and bedtime stories. The story resonates with parents and children alike, celebrating the unique bond between fathers and daughters.
