Diverse City

Shawna’s first children’s book inspired by her son Zach and his friend Jacob when they were in first grade. “I wanted to provide a teachable resource for schools that encourages kids to embrace and celebrate their differences while understanding how we are all connected as ONE.” The original book was self-published through Winters Press in 2007 and Shawna started her own publishing company, Rhythm Ray Inc. with the help of investors in January 2008 to release a special edition of Diverse City with Motown boy band, B5, including a CD with narration and the book in song.
