Takes the Resentment Out of Cooking

I kidded online with the host of ATWTW, Corrina Allen, that her weekly show takes the resentment out of cooking, but really.....I WASNT kidding. Working with kidlit authors and artists, I need to keep up with the latest releases and any other current or upcoming kidlit news. This podcast never disappoints. Corrina has a friendly, soothing voice, and her weekly guests and co-contributors are always wonderful, entertaining, eye-opening and so knowledgeable. As far as I know, there isn’t a topic they wouldn’t cover, if it hasn’t been done at all. They confront issues that are current to children, offering wonderfully diverse book choices. This is a must listen to podcast for anyone who reads with children, or advises them on book choices. Teachers, Librarians,Parents, Authors, Illustrators and even students....subscribe and you will come away feeling happy, knowledgeable, and your days of making Resentment Chicken will melt away. p.s. I usually get done making what I need to before the podcast ends. Only once did I still have chicken hands at the time it ended. NO.....I did not touch the ipad until I washed😆However, it took me right to the previous week’s show, which though I had listened to already, i decided to leave it and caught something i missed! Must have been distracted that week by the burning smell....... subscribe to All The Wonders This Week and join the kidlit family for an intimate chat. Off to cook......I mean listen.😊✌🏼🎶🎨📚😊💁🏼

If Kids' Content is Your Jam!

There's no better place to get your weekly kidlit news if you're a parent or educator! New book releases, events, movies, etc. And Corrina is my absolute favorite host! 🤩

MG teachers: here’s your podcast!

I love Corrina’s podcasts, and this one is excellent! She packs a lot into a 15 minute session, so it’s perfect for my Tuesday morning! Terrific book suggestions, and always some things to think about when we are sharing book with kids!
