For my latest podcast episode, number 16 in my series, I decided to share a radio program on which I had the pleasure of participating recently. The program is called The Woodstock Roundtable, and the show is heard on WDST-FM in Woodstock and hosted by Doug Grunther. Thanks to Doug , Ron VanWarmer and Gary Chetkof of WDST for not only keeping this show alive but for having me as a guest.
On the radio show, I was invited to talk about my series of children’s books for Social and Emotional, and in particular the discussion started with the radio host asking about my book called A KID’S CONCERN: THE CORONAVIRUS – FEELING SICK – BAD. That three-story book has gained a lot of attention among news organizations because it’s a children’s book related to the pandemic that began in 2020, but the conversation about that book led, as it eventually does, to a talk about having honest communication with young children about life, about emotions and about feelings.
The 20 books in my series of paperbacks are all here on this website under the books tab, and they were all created to help busy parents have the tools and the language to support social and emotional learning at home or in schools… it’s my way of continuing to be of service in the field of education.
By the way, during this interview, I introduced my concept of helping families further with a bit of a special offer… if a family buys multiple books in my series, I will zoom with a child or children in that family as a bonus. My years of teaching were always about service to children and their families, and this is my way of continuing to be contributing.
