Engaging, fun podcast for kids

My daughters and I love listening to the kids ask authors podcasts! The speakers are so engaging. We love listening to the authors’ responses and learning about the writing process. We also love the book reviews and have really enjoyed reading books we otherwise wouldn’t have heard of.
