“Andrea and Mark” by Bob StaakeJust One More Book is a thrice-weekly podcast which promotes and celebrates literacy and great children’s books.

Each weekday morning, we take a few minutes out of our morning coffee ritual to discuss one of our many favourite children’s books. We also feature weekly interviews with authors, illustrators and experts and enthusiasts in the areas of children’s literature and literacy as well as listener-submitted audio reviews.

Through this podcast and its website, we are building a lively, interactive community linking children’s book authors, illustrators, readers (children, parents, educators and librarians) and publishers.

Episodes range in length from 5 to 30 minutes and can be played directly from our web page or downloaded to an iPod for listening on the go.

This podcast is powered by passion. We have no advertisers or sponsors. Our goal is to link children with great books and help create happy memories for children and the adults that read to them…and to have fun!

If you would like to share these conversations with others who are interested in connecting families and children with great children’s books, please feel free to link to this site and to pass it along to parents and teachers.

We hope you discover some new favourites!
