Every child has an incredible and unique adventure of their own. From the moment they are born, they embark on a journey of self-discovery and exploration. It can be a thrilling adventure filled with joy, new experiences, and courage-building moments. But it can also be a scary one as our little ones try to find their way in the world and become in tune with their own selves. 🗺️ 🧭️

As parents, we want our kids to learn that life is an adventure and each day is filled with blessings and opportunities. Therefore, it is our job to guide our children from fear to confidence—to show them how powerful their own inner voice really is. 🔊👦👧

When our kids understand that they have a voice and feel confident with who they are, we are raising them to live their lives not only with an appreciation for the outcome but for the entire experience of life itself.🧑‍🚀🧑‍🚀🕵‍♀️🕵‍♂️

And so, three of our favorite neighbors are teaching kids to be in tune with their inner selves and just enjoy the journey ahead of them no matter how scary or uncertain the circumstances are. 

We cordially invite you and your little ones to join David Newell (who played the beloved Mr. McFeely on Mister Rogers Neighborhood), our John Masiulionis, and Little Forrest for Ep. #23 of PR From The Heart’s Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share two amazing books: Blue Baboon Finds Her Tune by Helen and Thomas Docherty and Evergreen by Matthew Cordell. 📚

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Helen and Thomas’ Blue Baboon Finds Her Tune and Matthew’s Evergreen by purchasing and enjoying these empowering reads with your little ones:
