Creator Regina Edwards was born and raised in Jacksonville but has spent the last 28 years living in Maryland. Having built her background as an educator, she returned to her hometown to make a difference in children’s lives.

Edwards had been working hard for two years developing “Ant DivaMo,” a character that she says will improve life skills for children and teach them how to be organized. Edwards feels children will respond to her message because of her use of bright colors, catchy songs and music.

The “Ant DivaMo” books teach children the importance of everyday tasks like making the bed, keeping up with personal hygiene and eating right. Future proceeds from her “Any DivaMo” books and music will be put back into the project; Edwards has plans for after-school and summer-camp programs as well as themed parties, story-time readings and videos.

Edwards will speak about “Ant DivaMo” 1 p.m. April 19 at the Community First Pitch Deck at Main Street Park.
