As a mother to biracial children I wanted something that helps teach them that they are beautiful and that it is important to love oneself to be truly happy. To teach them that all children are special in their own way.When I finished writing the book I didn't want to keep it to myself, but share this message with other families, as it is an important lesson in life. It is equally important for children to love themselves and know that their happiness is not dependent on others.
Marisa Taylor lives in London, UK with her husband and two daughters. They are a mixed Jamaican, Canadian & German family. London has a diverse range of people, cultures & ethnic backgrounds. However, she still found it difficult to find books that reflect the amazing city and represent children from all over. She is passionate about learning & teaching languages as it is a key element to connecting with people from other cultures. Her desire is to inspire and motivate parents and children from all nationalities & backgrounds to love who they are and be happy within. Marisa speaks German and Spanish to her children and wanted to create a bilingual series of her book´happy within´, with the aim of helping her children improve their language skills, as well as help other families learn another language together.
