We are delighted to welcome Monique Dupree (Nanny Miss Monique) to our podcast this week, and remember: you can find Adventure Nannies On Air wherever you listen to podcasts!
The back-to-school season is here, and as we transition from beach days to book bags, literacy takes center stage for school-aged kids. In this episode, we are thrilled to speak with Monique Dupree, a nanny for over 20 years and an extraordinary advocate for inclusive children’s books. Known as “Nanny Miss Monique” through social media, she has connected the childcare community to the literary world through book reviews, local in-person and virtual storytime readings, and interviews with authors and illustrators.
Join Shenandoah and Danielle in a wonderful conversation with Monique about the impact of curating a home library to include children’s books representing diverse characters and cultures. Monique shares how books can provide a window into understanding and celebrating people from all walks of life and lived experiences and how books can also offer a mirror for children to see a reflection of themselves represented. Kick off the new school year with some great ideas for encouraging literacy, inclusivity, and a love for learning.

We hope you will enjoy Adventure Nannies On Air as much as we have enjoyed creating it so far, and we look forward to developing more and more ways we can support and stay in touch with nannies around the world.
