As parents, helping our kids develop a repertoire of skills can equip them to face different situations and flourish in their respective paths. After all, these skills not only vitalize the present moment but also contribute significantly to shaping their future. 

Cooking can be a great start in doing this. It has all the elements of fun, creativity, and learning. Invigorating the kitchen with the vibrant energy of little ones can have lasting benefits as they continue to grow and develop new skills and interests. 

And so, one passionate advocate from Edmonton, Alberta is encouraging parents to embrace the opportunity to bond with their little ones while guiding them toward becoming capable individuals. 

Children’s Author and Certified Early Childhood Supervisor, Sandy Mak joins our John Masiulionis and Little Forrest for Episode #180 of PR From The Heart’s Children’s Books Spotlight Series to talk about Sandy’s experience in working with children and the life lessons weaved in each of the colorful pages of her book. She also shares how parents can make cooking a blast and not a bore for their kids, the connection between tasty meals and family feels, the importance of teaching our kids patience and self-reliance, and how parents can support their little ones when the school bell rings again.

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Sandy by purchasing your copy of What’s For Breakfast? and enjoying this empowering read with your little ones:
