Are you ready to have hard conversations with your kids on topics like divorce and sexual abuse? A Kids Book About: The Podcast can help. This show provides extremely valuable content to equip parents to answer kids’ burning questions.
Its origin is fascinating. It all started with Jelani Memory, who is a Black father with a blended family: four White kids and two Brown kids. He knew a discussion about racism was inevitable and wrote a book to make it comfortable for him and his children to have that talk. He found that other adults had the same need.
That book spawned an entire series of books by other authors, covering topics that grown-ups may struggle to discuss, such as cancer, belonging, shame, and gratitude, to name a few.
By the end of 2020, just a year after its inception, the book series had been included on Oprah’s Favorite Things list.
The podcast, which was launched at the beginning of this year, also deserves high acclaim. It gives kids a chance to hear the authors interact with listeners and dig deeper into their books. If you’ve ever wanted to introduce your child to mindfulness, teach them about disabilities, or dispel COVID-19 myths, this show is a great resource.
A Kids Book About: The Podcast is must-listen for every family!
