Thank you so much for your podcasts and for your generous support of children reading initiatives. As father of a 3 yo son and 2 yo daughter, its great to have a resource like Just One More Book. Keep up the great work!

We really appreciate your kind words and we loved checking out your beautiful family photos. Thanks!

We’re glad you’re enjoying JOMB. We’d love to hear your thoughts on a favourite children’s book (the three of you) and hope you will consider sending us listener-submitted book review…

It’s also a great reminder for us to bring out more of our favourite books for 2 and 3 year olds.

Happy reading,

Love the Podcasts and ESPECIALLY the interviews! As a fellow artist and illustrator I would love to see you include perhaps a feature (perhaps connected with Youtube or something) that shows how some of the illustrators create a picture using their preferred medium. It would REALLY be interesting,..or perhaps only to me….I don’t know, just seems really like an area that is never touched on. Would love to see Elise’s design process and how she works with pastels from sketch to final art. I’m very tight with the pen and ink and would love to begin a looser, more organic style, but would love to see a pro like Elise do this.
