Every child deserves to experience joy and happiness in their life. And as parents, it is our responsibility to ensure that our children are able to engage in experiences that bring them pleasure and lasting memories. This could be as simple as having lunch with a friend and eating their favorite food or playing with their furry friends.

Making time for fun activities like these can help children develop important social skills, build relationships, and foster a sense of belongingness. It also helps them learn the importance of spending quality time with family and friends. 

And so, two of our favorite neighbors are bringing delight into children’s lives by showing them that joy is readily found around them if they know where to look. 

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 Ep. #26 of PR From The Heart’s Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share two amazing books: Jim Price’s third installment of Harold From The Hood Series, Fun Time Lunch Time and Annesley Hackathorn’s Shenleigh O’Doodle, Half Golden, Half Poodle. 📚

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