NBC 10’s Meaghan Mooney Releases Tilly Tails Children’s Book
Tilly Tails: A Day at the Beach is a story inspired by Mooney's rescue dog.
Meaghan Mooney didn’t expect that adopting a rescue dog in Denver would inspire her to write a children’s book. Yet, four years later, the Emmy award-winning WJAR NBC 10 TV host and anchor published her first children’s book, Tilly Tails: A Day at the Beach, about her dog that later became her father’s best friend. The two had such a magical bond that Tilly stayed in Rhode Island with Mooney’s father when Mooney had to move to Washington, D.C., for her television news career. He would send Meaghan “Tilly Tail” texts about their adventures which ultimately inspired her book. After Mooney returned to Rhode Island, she began working for WJAR / NBC 10 as the traffic anchor on “Sunrise” and eventually launched the station’s new live, lifestyle show, “Studio 10.”
Tilly Tails: A Day at the Beach tells the story of Tilly, a shy little pooch, who becomes a confident and curious explorer. With rhyming and vibrant images, Tilly’s story teaches kids important lessons and sends positive messages about pet adoption, friendship, curiosity and diversity. Mooney’s book also includes interactive elements for readers and is recommended for children ages two to eight.
