FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT

October 10, 2020, Parlin, NJ –– Rarely do we see a children’s book that is also content appropriate even for all age groups. “Christmas with Godiva” is a classic book by Anyeah Banks set in a modern era that is still relevant to all the social issues happening around the world particularly concerning a person’s color. During this time of a pandemic and social injustice, children of color need to see that they can play any role that they want. That they can be anything that they set out to be. That is what this book is about.

"I am extremely happy to see a diversified book especially a children's book. We need to be able to show all ethnicity to the world! "Christmas With Godiva" is that book," commented Vaness Grace.

“Christmas With Godiva,” tells an interesting story about a Havanese puppy that is being mischievous on Christmas eve. While his owners are asleep, Godiva gets a visit from Santa that told him he is on the naughty list. Godiva has to convince Santa to put him on the Nice list. This is where the challenge begins and Godiva has to try his best to avoid any mischief.

"I follow Godiva Instagram account and was sent a copy of "Christmas with Godiva" and I can say I was truly taken back by this book that was so joyful during this time when the world is going through so much sorrow. This gives me hope! I can't wait for my grandchildren to open up this book on Christmas day" - Betty McCoy

In the story, it is evident that Santa is of color because Anyeah Banks wanted to allow children to see that Santa can be of a different nationality too.
“Growing up as an African-American the children’s book I had never showcase characters that look like me,” Banks said.

African-American children never had characters that look like them in most of the popular children’s books and this is the perfect opportunity to challenge that archetype.

“In 1990, scholar Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop wrote that books are mirrors, reflecting our own lives at us, and that reading is, therefore, a means of self-affirmation” (Natalie Stechyson).

In real life, Godiva is a rising Instagram influencer that brings so much joy to the world. With a growing base of Instagram followers, Godiva’s warm and loving personality touches everyone that connects with him.

“Godiva is the definition of love and warmth, and he is funny too. I swear sometimes I think he can talk! As we approach the holiday season I’d love to share “Christmas With Godiva,” said Anyeah Banks.
