We are two supposed grown-ups who never outgrew children's books, and we believe a bookshelf should only be empty when you're reading what was just on it. For every podcast, we pick a theme and round up our favorite books on the topic -- plus featured book recommendations from kids, for kids.

    500+ Book Reviews from Kids!

    If you asked your best friend, “What book should I read next?” — I bet they would have LOTS of suggestions. Well, that’s what the Reviews by You(th) section of Kidsmomo is all about! As of January, over 500 reviews have been submitted by kids like you, so…

    In celebration, we decided to launch our very own Kidsmomo radio station* to share a few of our favorite book reviews with the world.

    It’s almost that time of the year again! Children’s Book Week is coming up!
    This year, Children’s Book Week is May 13 to May 19 — which means there’s just about a month left to vote for the Children’s Choice Book Awards that are part of the big celebration. As you’ve probably already guessed, these are book awards where the votes come from kids like YOU. Teachers, librarians, and other old fogies (like me and Karen) vote separately, so your vote is all the more important!
    Check out this year’s finalists for Book of the Year and see how you can vote below!
    If you’re in 3rd or 4th Grade… Vote Here!











    If you’re in 5th or 6th Grade… Vote Here!











    You can also vote for Author and Illustrator of the Year. Finalists include R.J. Palacio, Jeff Kinney, and Rick Riordan — all of whom always make us think…

    We’re not worthy!
    Happy Voting!
    —Nancy
    Nancy hates voting because she hates making decisions. But we all gotta do what we gotta do…

    Bloopers & Outtakes 2012

    National Humor Month is coming to an end, but the fun’s just getting started… with a new blooper reel! This one is almost twice as long as last year’s blooper reel, so get ready…
    Believe it or not, this is edited down from about 50 minutes of bloopers, outtakes, bad takes, mistakes, and even some spit takes.

    Still not sure about hitting that play button? Well, (cue infomercial announcer voice) in this satisfaction-guaranteed-completely-free-2-minute-and-46-second-blooper-reel, you’ll hear…

    Burping!
    Laughing!
    Confusion!
    Farting (noises)!
    Indecision!
    Pizza!
    Singing!
