Spring arrives each year with the promise of new life. Thanks to the seeds that we previously planted, green shoots of hope start to emerge, a timely reminder that hard work bears fruit.

Teaching this lesson to our little ones will strengthen their belief that the seeds of their dreams can blossom into reality even when they can’t see the progress each day.

And so, one beloved storyteller is reminding us all that with care, patience, and perseverance, we can harvest love, hope, and healing in our lives.  

Award-Winning Children’s Author, Antwan Eady joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest on Episode #202 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share his inspiring story, how he transformed rejection to redirection early on in his career, getting his big break with Nigel and the Moon, the release of his new children’s book, The Last Stand (published by Knopf Books for Young Readers/Penguin Random House), why it’s important for us to remember black farmers and their contributions to agriculture, how supporting local farmers and farmers markets makes a difference, the power of giving back to our communities, embracing the beauty of slowing down, plus much more. ‍

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Antwan by purchasing your copies of The Last Stand and enjoy this empowering read with your little ones: https://bit.ly/43nPmbG .
