Hi Andrea and Mark,
I really like this episode! It helps contextualize all the conversations you have had/ will have regarding children’s books. :-)

Go JOMB!

Hi Andrea and Mark,

I am really enjoying your podcast and was especially drawn to this episode. I couldn’t agree more about your opinion on “junk books” and big box stores. All I can see are aisles and aisles of tv show books and nonesense. Ick.

Thanks for including reviews on books written for the 0-3 set. Although I think my son is a genius ;), he did just turn 3 and I appreciate the different age range recommendations.

Also, thank you for inspiring many trips to the library. I like to test drive the books with my son before I invest in a copy for our home library.

Keep up the great reviews and thanks for this unique podcast!

Hi Karen,

Thanks for the very specific and positive feedback! I’m so glad you enjoy listening and I do hope you and your son find some new favourites.

Should we expect a listener review from you or your son? Kendra Kandlestar is a darned good read and before you know it your son will be old enough to enjoy it (or maybe he already is, being a genius and all!)

Thanks again and hope to hear from you soon,

Andrea

ps. as you have probably noticed, we have a significant female-protagonist slant to our books so we’ll depend upon listeners to help even out our coverage a bit!
