The way we treat ourselves is just as important as the way we treat our planet and everything in it—and children are capable of showing us what this looks like on a daily basis. 

Raising our children to be self-aware and environmentally conscious individuals is a great way to help them develop their own sense of self-worth and foster a deep understanding of how they affect their environment. As a result, they are able to express themselves in healthy ways while creating a greater impact on the world around them. 

And so, two of our favorite neighbors are helping parents and educators to raise conscious kids who can understand their own emotions and know how to manage them—not just for themselves but for everyone else around them too.

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. #25 of PR From The Heart’s Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share two amazing books: Julie D’Ann’s Which Would You Choose? and Katherine Roy’s Making More: How Life Begins.

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Julie and Katherine by purchasing and enjoying these empowering reads with your little ones:
