Caring for and helping one another cultivates feelings of appreciation, safety, and increases overall happiness.

Therefore, as parents and caregivers, one of the fundamental lessons we can teach our children is the power of valuing themselves. After all, in order to effectively help those around us, we have to take good care of ourselves first.

And so, two empathic advocates are helping to empower kids to sparkle and shine by creating a healthy balance of self-care and serving others. ✨

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 Episode #35 of The Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share Deborah Saracini’s Ally Protects the La Jolla Seals (published by Miriam Laundry Publishing) and Edie Higby’s 10 Tips from the Tooth Fairy.

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Deborah and Edie by purchasing your copies of Ally Protects the La Jolla Seals and 10 Tips From The Tooth Fairy and enjoying these empowering reads with your little ones:
