What was the initial inspiration for your app?
Growing up I enjoyed the Berenstain Bears series for its depiction of family, its humor and its endearing illustrations. I wanted to create a series like that, but more contemporary and set in the real world. The show Parks and Recreation was another source of inspiration. On that show, the co-workers run into all sorts of conflict with each other, but in the end, their friendship and love always shines through. I wanted to put that uplifting and lighthearted tone at the core of The Roxy Books.
What is your favorite aspect of your app?
My favorite aspect in this story is the father/daughter relationship. A repeated scene in the book is Roxy and her dad watching cartoons in their pj’s, their weekend ritual. Each time we see them, they are positioned differently (laying on each other or upside down on the couch), and through these scenes, we get to see they clearly enjoy being goofy with one another and value their time together.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
When I was a kid, there were dozens of shows and books which showcased families. Today, the family sitcom has gone away and most children’s media focuses on groups of friends and the challenges they face together. These brands have a lot to say about friendship, but generally shy away from the topic of family.
Children learn by example, so if we want them to develop happy and healthy family relationships, then we should be showing them examples of happy and healthy families. The Roxy Books were born out of the desire to give kids an example of a contemporary and fun-loving family.
