On this episode of the Reading with Your Kids podcast we have the pleasure of meeting authors Chiara Columbi and Heather Duke.  Chiara Colombi, discussed her debut picture book Rocket Ship Solo Trip. She drew inspiration from her love of space and desire to foster science interest in her kids. The book taps into emotions of new experiences.

Jedlie shared memories of storytelling for his kids and its impact. He stressed developing emotional intelligence through stories. Heather Duke, shared creating her book Two Shoes from an improvised story for her son. She found publishing unexpectedly fulfilling but struggled balancing creative work and family life.

The conversation covered differences in children's literature cultures internationally and excitement around future space exploration. Both guests caught the author bug and teased more books. Jedlie encouraged mindfulness in parenting, like admitting mistakes to help kids feel heard and respected.
