Some of the best moments that we experience and the most cherished memories that we create during the summer season involve family and food.

A dash of laughter. A sprinkle of stories. A spoonful of togetherness. Truly, a rewarding recipe.

As we bid farewell to the Summer of 2023, three of our fellow neighbors are here to help us remember that no matter the season we are celebrating, that family + food = fun, the equation that is the real tried-and-true formula for happiness. ➕️

We cordially invite you and your little ones to join David Newell (who played the beloved Mr. McFeely on Mister Rogers Neighborhood), along with our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest for Ep. #29 of PR From The Heart’s Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share two amazing books, Michael Genhart and John Parra’s Spanish Is the Language of My Family (published by Holiday House Publishing, Inc.) and Sandy Mak’s What’s For Breakfast? (published by Miriam Laundry Publishing).

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Michael, John, and Sandy by purchasing your copies of Spanish Is the Language of My Family and What’s For Breakfast? and enjoying these empowering reads with your little ones:
