Earlier this week, Greg Lato was featured on GoLocal Providence where he spoke to news editor, Kate Nagle. During his appearance, he shared information regarding his inspiration. As a father, he attempts to instill the concept of trying in his daughters. Whether it be a new sport or activity, making a new friend, or overcoming a challenge- the most primitive and effective solution is to try. You never know what doors it could open up or what experiences await. Lato’s children book entitled “Try” is revolved around this concept and includes a musical tune intended to go along with it.
