The road less traveled… corporate executive to children’s book author. Wendy LaGuardia gains recognition on the front page of Randolph’s local paper (circulation approx. 25,000), with NBC anchor, David Ushery and Christopher Awards Program Manager, Tony Rossi.
LaGuardia had won the Christopher award and at the time of this article, was a finalist in the Readers Favorite award contest, which she later won a Gold medal.
The article quotes, “LaGuardia believes that self-esteem and self-confidence are life-impacting qualities that must be taught to children at a young age. She states, “It’s too important to leave that chance. Self-esteem and self-confidence help define and shape “who” we become and is our underlying compass for risks we consider throughout life.””
As the article states, “In a digital age, where verbal conversations are being replaced with email, text, and impersonal voice response systems, “Would You Still Love Me If…” has a subtle way of showing the importance of compassion and empathy, especially in communication between parent and child. You can’t just read the words on the page without feeling them. And, by the end of the book, this “feel good” story creates an unspoken bond of trust, understanding, and love between you and your child that will last for years to come.”
