Are veterinarians real doctors? They sure are! 😊

Veterinarians make significant contributions to improving the health and well-being of our pets and the animals we love and care about, while also making an indelible impact on our own lives in the process. 🐶🐱💜🐮🐴

And so, one of our favorite neighbors is helping children and adults like to remember that veterinarians are real doctors, why they’re important now more than ever before, and that all doctors can be of any ethnicity, race, gender, and ability, creating a window into a better, more inclusive future with equal possibilities for all. 🤗

We cordially invite you and your little ones to join David Newell (who played the beloved Mr. McFeely on Mister Rogers Neighborhood) and our John Masiulionis for Episode #14 of PR From The Heart’s Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share Dr. Cherice Roth’s Real Doctor series for children (What’s A Real Doctor? and What Does A Real Doctor Look Like). 📚

As part of this special in-studio edition of The Neighborly Reviews Bookcast from Point Park University’s Center for Media Innovation in downtown Pittsburgh, Dr. Roth joins John and David to share her inspiring story, the inspiration behind the Real Doctor series for children and how her books came to life, her favorite parts of being a veterinarian and a children’s author, plus a sneak peek of the next installment in the Real Doctor series for children. 👩🏿‍⚕️

We encourage all of you to support Dr. Roth by purchasing your copy of the Real Doctor series, and enjoying this empowering read with your little ones! 👩🏿‍⚕️📚

Plus, John and David sit down with Jordon Williams, the Program Manager of Reading Is Fundamental Pittsburgh’s Book Babies program, to share how RIF Pittsburgh is helping to get kids back on the right track on the other side of the pandemic, a look inside the Book Babies program and the positive influence that it has on children, parents, and families in Pittsburgh, plus much more. 👩🏽
