U.S. ice dancers Maia and Alex Shibutani have been breaking barriers for years.

Children’s books have historically been lacking in multicultural representation, so Maia and Alex have been working to tackle that issue by publishing their own book.

In the return of the “My New Favorite Olympian” podcast, the sibling duo discussed how it all came about.

Ad”We read ‘Harry Potter’ and we read a bunch of different types of fiction and nonfiction, sports autobiographies and stuff,” Alex said.

The Shibutani Siblings hope that books like this can help Asian American children see themselves represented in an authentic light.
