Why the book
MKJ3 is a Canadian family owned entertainment company that focus on inspirational contents to engage kids, expanding their worlds and minds through relevant and fun storytelling. It wasn’t always easy to raise these 3 brothers (Micah, Kiah, Joiakim) in a household where Sickle Cell Disease has a seat at the table, routinely taking their medications and trying to make the best out of it.
Despite the race for a cure they have decided to promote healthy living and turn their situation around. What’s an interesting time we are living now where children’s needs inspirations more than ever.
Also, I wanted to write a book that represented us. My kids love superheroes, but we would never see black superhero book in the library especially in Quebec. Representation is important, particularly in the time we are living now. What was most important for me, was also to advocate for Sickle Cell disease, a disease that affect African decent and it was important to highlight it in the book in a way kids with the disease would understand and see themselves as superheroes.
The book resume
