Music opens up a whole new door: a door full of new friends, beginnings, and perspectives. 🎵

And so, one of our favorite little neighbors, a brave little boy from across the pond, along with his favorite dinosaur friends, are helping to show us how music is opening the doors to 2022 and how it has the power to bring the world together. ✨🌎

Children’s author Darren Garwood joins our John Masiulionis on Episode #136 of The Empowered Publicity Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share how his son’s battle with Krabbe Disease inspired him to create his popular Jackson Superhero series, a look inside the newest installment in the series, Jackson Saves The Dinosaurs, how music is healing and helps to bring us together, why it’s important for children to dream and for us, as adults, to never give up on our dreams, plus much more. 🦕📖

We encourage all of you to support Darren and his family by purchasing your copy of Jackson Saves the Dinosaurs, along with the entire Jackson Superhero series (Jackson Saves an Owl, Jackson’s Solution to Pollution, Jackson Saves the Moon), and enjoying this empowering read with your little ones! 📚

We also invite you to tune in to Darren’s three previous trolley stops on The Children’s Books Spotlight Series, Episode #30 (, Episode #53 (, Episode #106 (, where Darren talks to us about how we are our own superheroes, how working together means winning together, and how laughter helps us to heal. 🤗
