You’ve got 2 wonderful girls and it’s heartwarming to hear their passion for books! I’m reading Enid Blyton’s wishing chair stories to my 5 yr old son and he is loving it. We also think Julia Donaldson’s books are wonderful – The Gruffalo, The Snail and the Whale, The Smartest Giant in Town.

Thank you, Daisy!
Our favourite Julia Donaldson’s are Room on the Broom & The Gruffalo. Will have to get our hands on the wishing chair stories. Happy New Year!

Congratulations on your 500th episode. I enjoyed this episode a lot. It’s great to hear from two kids who so clearly enjoy books. I especially liked “I superdy-dooper loved this book” (or something similar to that). I look forward to 500 more podcasts from you! Happy New Year!

Thank you, Jen. It was really fun to sit and reflect on the fun we’d had reading recently. I noticed afterwards that there was a very high British and Canadian trend in their favourites. The only American books they counted among their standouts were Penderwicks, Benedict, Dodger & Ivy&Bean. This is extremely surprising, given the books they read and have access to. We’ll have to do this more often and see if it balances out.

Congratulations on your 500th episode and many more ahead! Thanks for supporting the book industry and authors.
P.S. I am also a fan of the Mysterious Benedict Society.

Oh, good … I’m not too late to the party! Congratulations Andrea and Mark. It’s so neat to hear Andrea open the show and to sit in on the discussions. C got The Penderwicks for Christmas, and now I’m really excited about sharing it!

This was very informative! I can’t wait to get my copy of “You’re a Bad Man, Mr. Gum” after it was called “super-de-duper” by the girls. It sounds like a riot!

I finally got You’re a Bad Man, Mr. Gum in the mail all the way from the UK. This is a hysterical book! My 2nd grade students can’t get enough of it. I think it’s super-de-duper too 🙂
