Our pets are more than just animal companions, they are our fur-ever friends that help heal our hearts and lift our spirits.

And if we take the time to sit and listen with our hearts, we can hear them reminding us to stay present, play more, and love unconditionally. 

And so, as we turn the page to 2024, one pet lover from Missouri is encouraging young and old alike to make meaningful moments count by cozying up with new books and sharing smiles between each page. 

Children’s Author, Alysen Bayles, joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest on Episode #192 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share her literary prides, Winston, Silly Sam From Galapagos Land, and Cambridge and Clyde; her inspiring journey from farm life to published pages; the impact of true stories on our little ones’ perspectives and empathy; tips on how to help our kids cultivate a giving mindset; and more. 

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Alysen by purchasing your copies of Winston, Silly Sam From Galapagos Land, and Cambridge and Clyde, and enjoying these empowering reads with your little ones:
