Creating memories is a priceless treasure that we can make every single day and in a year, we have the potential to experience 365 new adventures and discoveries with our loved ones. 

By teaching our children to greet each day with fun and excitement, we can foster an environment where learning becomes an enjoyable and stimulating experience.

And so, one respected and prolific authoress is helping little ones shape their perspective towards time and life by teaching them how to make the most out of each day and cherish the moments that define their journey. 

Award-Winning Children’s Author, Miranda Paul, joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest on Episode #187 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share her new book, 365: How to Count a Year (which was named Best Book of October 2023 by Amazon) along with lessons on how young and old alike can make their year (and each day of the year) count; measuring time by making memories; making math fun for kids; insights into her creative process; tips to stay grounded and focused; and more. 

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Miranda by purchasing your copies of 365: How to Count a Year and enjoying these empowering reads with your little ones:
