Denise M. Johnson is the founder and co-owner Johnson Jr. Family Books. She is a married mother of two girls from Chicago, Illinois. She is an author, writer, and visionary. She and her husband created, wrote, illustrated and published a book for children ages 5 and younger to get them reading. The book, “Lotus and Lily Go to the Park”, introduces numbers, colors, and sight words.
Denise says: We just released the audiobook for the book, which we are very grateful for our daughters, whom at ages 6 and 4, narrated the project! We plan to produce the second book in the near future. We were featured in the Austin Weekly News, (our local paper) and have participated in the Annual Children’s Book Fair and Soulful Chicago Book Fair in our city in 2018. We are passionate about educating children early before school starts and have started with our own children. My passion is to reach children worldwide, especially little children of color, with characters that look like them and a family with a strong loving father. I am also available to schedule author readings with local schools or daycares. I also firmly believe in getting back to your true passion to become your best self and am available to accept speaking engagements regarding the matter.
