Bringing figurative language into our kids’ world is the magic touch that adds an enchanting depth to their reading journey, igniting their curiosity and love for literature.

Therefore, when we, as parents and educators, teach our little ones how to adorn their language with sparkling tinsels of figurative expressions, we can ensure that the season of reading never ends in their young and curious hearts.

And so, this holiday season, one phenomenal grandma is weaving words into bridges of laughter, uniting families with the power of a good book and the joy of shared tales. 

Award-Winning Children’s Author, Dorenda Doyle, joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest on Episode #189 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share her journey to becoming an author, the origin of her series, how figurative language can boost the fun in our kids’ reading, how raising our kids to be readers can impact their future success, the importance of families reading together, and highlights for the upcoming Seasons Readings to be held on November 18th.
