Dive into the transformative power of children's literature and the importance of embracing empathy in storytelling. Kaitlin is joined by Betty Larrea, author of "Lucinda's Magical Yoga Adventure," to explore how books can shape young minds, foster imagination, and promote social-emotional learning.

Betty shares her journey as a certified yoga teacher for children and discusses the challenges and rewards of writing and publishing books that resonate with diverse audiences. We delve into the significance of representation in literature, the role of mindfulness in education, and the necessity of building supportive communities to amplify positive values in storytelling.
