Childhood is a very impressionable time for children. The way parents interact with them during these formative years will have an impact on how they treat themselves and others as they grow up. 

And so, the first lesson we ought to teach our children is that they are seen, heard, and loved. When children feel seen, they will develop a healthy measure of self-esteem and worthiness. When children feel heard, they will be able to express themselves honestly and with dignity. When children feel loved, they will have a sense of security and safety within their environment.

And so, one of our neighbors is here to share her brand new children’s book called, The Moon Knows Lily— a heartwarming book that reminds us that when we feel alone and scared, there is always someone above that values us as individuals. 

Children’s author Ednar Jacques joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest for Episode #165 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to talk about the importance of validating our kids’ feelings, helping them connect with joy, and teaching them that they are capable of dreaming big. They also discuss Ednar’s book writing process, the significance of the moon, and why parents should take time to read to their kids at night. 


We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Ednar by purchasing your copy of The Moon Knows Lily and enjoying this empowering read with your little ones: 📖
