Librarians, Teacher tips and Books recomendations, Oh my!

I have been listening to YKNR for years, first as a Teacher Librarian, then classroom teacher and now mum/teacher.
Allison and Megan bring so much book knowledge, fun, creativity and warmth to their podcast. It has been such a valuable resource as a TL to know the latest quality literature, as a classroom teacher to know what I should be reading to my students and encouraging them to read a wide variety of texts. I have many EAL/D students at my school so it is great to know different texts to expose them to. As a mum I love hearing suggestions and listening for what may spark my son’s interest. Thank you ladies for years of quality waffle!

Never miss an episode

Love the book mail, recommendations, interviews and the quality waffle. As a YA librarian I find there is always something of interest in every episode and especially like the reviews of new books, for my own reading list as well as for my students. Never miss an episode and highly recommend.
