Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Thursday, March 30, 2023, Tiffany Obeng. Tiffany is a lawyer and author of several educational and inspiring children's picture books. Tiffany creates books featuring Black children and families in spaces where they have historically been absent.
Inspired by her son Andrew’s inquisitive nature to learn more about dinosaurs, her books are structured to feature Black child characters in normal everyday situations. However, “truly” these books are for every young child inquisitive to learn, inquire and know more about a particular subject.
It was important to Tiffany in this way, so that all children are normalized, humanized, and the world can be made a safer place for them. Her books include popular kids' career books Andrew Learns about Lawyers and Andrew Learns about Engineers; season book Spencer Knows Spring and honesty book Scout's Honor.
Having had the opportunity to read Andrew Learns About Scientists, Tiffany’s book is beautifully written and illustrated and I learned as I read with great interest, that I am still a kid at heart and even learned a few things!
No doubt that Tiffany is on a mission and that is the beauty and inspiration on how she will be the Britanica of Books!!
