So fun and interesting
I love hearing this with my cousin!
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.
Anytime I ask my daughter what she’d like to listen to she always answers, “Grace Lin podcast!” I hope you continue making podcasts- we love them.
