Three fascinating guests on this epsiode of Reading With Your Kids. First up is Jennifer Nestor, author of  "Jane Escapes to the Jungle of Individuality". This book  uses animal characters to help a young girl embrace her unique traits. Jane Smith's book "Teddy's Bear Takes a Tumble" shows a boy caring for his stuffed bear like his caring father cares for him, passing kindness through generations. Both authors emphasized the importance of embracing individuality and positive role models.

 We discussed creating children's books that address difficult topics through enjoyable stories. Traditional publishing was compared to self-publishing, with Jane Smith choosing to independently publish to directly connect with readers. We end the show with a delightful chat with Valentina, an Italian government official who was instrumental in coordinating an initiative that sponsored tweny publishers to visit the International Children's Book Festival. Valentina shares her loveof  the history, culture, and famous cuisine of Bologna, Italy, including underground rivers and Michelangelo's smaller statue.
