by Mica Sebti
Still unsure about what to do for Valentine ’s Day? look no further than the show for all ages Dear Edwina. Dear Edwina is a heartwarming show about the joys of growing up.
The show’s heroine, Edwina Spoonapple, is an advice-giver extraordinaire, like a spunky, singing version of Dear Abby. Told through a show-within-a-show format, Edwina and her friends share wisdom on everything from trying new foods to making new friends through clever, catchy and poignant songs.
