RWYK Easter Special Episode Ft. Ruth King: Gilly the Grateful Superhero
Happy Easter everyone!
Easter is the day to be thankful for even the smallest of blessings we have been granted. The luxury of having a roof over one’s head that one can call home. Easter s also a great time to remind our children to appreciate and value not just material things but appreciate family and everything around them. To celebrate, we have a very talented children’s books author, Ruth King on the Reading with Your Kids podcast. Ruth is joining us to talk about her wonderful debut picture book titled Gilly the Grateful Superhero!
