As most Disney fans know, EPCOT Center in Walt Disney World is nothing short of a cornucopia of different cultures allowing any who visits to feel as if they really are traveling around the world. As EPCOT allows you to walk around World Showcase and be immersed in the heritage of each country it offers, Deanna Novak’s children’s books allow us this same opportunity. When we step inside the story she tells, we are transported, not only to a different land, but to one that actually makes us who we are today. Deanna is the creator of the original My Heritage Book, the first ever publication to allow such freedom in personalization. No two books are the same as they each tell the story of the heritage of one particular person. From her innovative notion of teaching children about their backgrounds, Deanna launched an educational empire where she not only writes her own books, but publishes them, as well, through her company Kids Heritage, Inc. I can’t thank Deanna enough for her willingness to be interviewed. I hope that you all are as touched and inspired by her story as I am.
