One of THE best KidLit podcasts!

No matter the host, from Karina, to Matthew, to Nicole, this is one of THE best children’s literature podcasts around! It’s filled with inclusive book recommendations, author interviews, and more!

Always thoughtful and insightful!

Love this podcast so much! I appreciate the deeper dive into topics that are so important to bring to the forefront and that are not always highlighted in the industry at large. Thank you so much for your work and these conversations. Appreciate you both, Nicole and Matthew!
