Hi, I’m Lauren, a mom, former teacher turned children’s book author
and your host who joins special guests each episode as we share our top
kid lit picks in SEL (social-emotional learning) that help spark hard conversations, the easy way!

Yep, that means everything from forging friendships to tackling 
out-of-control anger, to celebrating diversity, inclusion, and leading
with kindness -
we've got a book pick for that! 

My whole mission of my own children's book series, Blooming Rose, is to provide social and
emotional support tools for in and out of the classroom - and this podcast is my way to expand that mission even further by sharing some of the other amazing books out there!

Our resource, Mama's Guide to Hard Conversations, is a quick
cheat sheet about what 
SEL is, and how to navigate tricky
conversations into meaningful discussions - with book picks!
It is now available to download
