Women Worldwide welcomes Katy Towell to the show. Katy is an acclaimed illustrator and children’s author. She is the creator of the Childrin R Skary website and illustrated series, which has a cult following of over 150,000 scared adults, teens and children.
On the show, Katy discusses how her books teach children about fear and all of its facets: grief, loss, love, depression and anger. Although many parents go to great lengths to shield their children from negativity in an effort to make them feel safe, Katy would rather address scary topics to make kids feel more comfortable.
