Have a think about the TV shows, books and toys you entertain your child with. Where are the different faces and cultures?
Naomi Kissiedu-Green, who has Ghanaian heritage, is often asked by people if she's the nanny to her own children. And as she's been raising her children, she's constantly noticed a lack of diversity in the media our kids consume, particularly in picture books. So she decided to do something about it, and make her own.
We chat with Naomi about starting her family, how people react, and why people aren't exposed to diversity more frequently.
For more on her books check out Book Depository. Plus you can catch Naomi's recently published TEDx Talk below!
