This week host Amy Parker and Mike Nawrocki talk with Author Lexi Young Pack about her new book What Do You Say to a Dragon, a whimsical book that empowers children to express their emotions and use their imaginations to change the power dynamic of anxiety while also giving parents a healthy approach to helping their kids face fears.
Lexi Peck is one of six children and the daughter of William Paul Young, author of The Shack. She was raised and still resides in the Pacific Northwest on a farm raising cattle with her husband, Josh, and their two children, Vivian and Xander.
She graduated summa cum laude from Portland State University with a BA in psychology, centering her studies on childhood development. Her passion to deeply understand how children develop and thrive in the world became a driving focus. Lexi became a children's author with the intention of passing on her insight to those who are hoping to engage parenting to the fullest.
Lexi's first children's book, What Do You Say to a Dragon?, was born out of a real-life situation with her daughter, Vivian, waking from a recurring nightmare.
