New Podcast Program Allows Children to Express Feelings & Explores Timely Issues Hosted by Main Character of Popular Book Series
Lilly the Lash and Friends, a free podcast program, addresses important challenges children all over the globe face daily. Host Lilly the Lash, the main character of the beautifully illustrated children’s book series "The Life and Times of Lilly the Lash," gives children a platform to explore timely issues and concerns. Each episode features a listener’s letter describing a challenge their facing or a good deed. She provides guidance, offers advice and celebrates good behavior.
“This is the first podcast program where a storybook character is the actual host,” points out author and podcast creator, Julie Woik. "The podcast program gives Lilly a voice and she in turn, encourages children to speak up and share their stories with other listeners." Woik, a freelance writer and poet, living in Sarasota, Florida, recognizes the importance of strong self-esteem. She creates endearing characters that engage young children and their families, allowing her to address life lessons and promote good character while on her journey to making the world a better place.
The podcast series is an ideal resource for parents, educators, and anyone looking for additional tools to address behavioral issues, good character building skills and literacy. The ever-growing library, available at www.lillythelash.com/podcast.php, can be paired with the book series, as well as other free teaching materials.
