Keeping Innocence, Imagination & Magic Alive w/ April Combs Mann – episode #30

 

I’m so thrilled to bring April Combs Mann to you today! April is SUCH a talented musician, and she’s combined that talent with her equally amazing writing skills and Waldorf training to create a podcast for children and families. I LOVE her deep compassion for children, and she inspires me to keep the magic alive – not only for my children, but for myself as well. This episode is chock-full of ways to connect with your children. I think you’ll love April’s humor, ease, and openness. I’ve also ended the episode with one my favorite songs of all time, written and sung by April, from another project of hers- The Honneycombs. So be sure to listen to the end for an extra treat. Enjoy!
