Research shows that when families read together, learning happens and memories are made that last a lifetime. 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦📖👨🏿‍👩🏿‍👧🏿‍👦🏿

And so, as we celebrate National Family Literacy Month, three of our favorite neighbors are here to inspire families to gather round, connect closer, and celebrate the experience of reading, learning, and growing together. 🤗

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 Episode #9 of The Empowered Publicity Neighborly Reviews Bookcast, as they share Laquita Bolden’s I Matter, Curtis Andrews’ Captain Curriculum Saves Circle Time, and Laura Renauld’s Squirrel’s Sweater, plus a very special birthday celebration for David. 📚🎉

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support these shining stars in the KidLit community by purchasing their empowering reads and enjoying them with your little ones:
