Insecurity, fear, and loneliness are all emotions that our kids may feel at some point in their lives. But it’s important to remember that these emotions are only temporary. 

Kids can overcome them by feeling that they are important, seen, and heard. Letting them know that they are valued and that their thoughts and feelings matter can go a long way in helping them feel better about themselves. 

And so, three of our favorite neighbors are helping kids gain comfort and confidence, knowing that they are not alone, they are perfectly unique, and that they are the captain of their own ship. When our children feel empowered, they will not fear the journey ahead, rather, they will face it with excitement, courage, and positivity.

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 #21 of PR From The Heart’s Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share three amazing books: The Moon Knows Lily by Ednar Jacques, Different Us by Dr. K. Renée, and My IOU Life Ship— Get Ready for the Journey! by Dr. Joe Famularo.📚

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Ednar’s The Moon Knows Lily, Dr. Renée’s Different Us, and Dr. Famularo’s My IOU Life Ship— Get Ready for the Journey! by purchasing and enjoying these empowering reads with your little ones:
