How to Use Children’s Literature to Engage Character Education Conversations

Why You've Got to Listen to This Episode...

Today I’m talking with children’s author, Maria Dismondy. Maria has published a handful of delightful books that focus on diversity and character education. Learn how a lack of diverse children’s literature inspired Maria to leave the classroom to publish her own children’s books. 

We’re talking about how you can use literature for creative conversations starters, tips for helping kids navigate anxiety with a new school year, and why we should always encourage curiosity!
