A wonderful and silly romp!

I stumbled upon this podcast completely by accident. While the name itself may be a mouthful, the podcast hosts do a wonderful job of reading the books and making me feel as though I'm seeing (most) of the images. Yes, they are clearly amateurs, but they are working from a place of passion and joy.

If you haven't listened yet, the hosts (and rare guest) take turns reading various children's picture books. They then comment on, describe, and occasionally mock the story. Children's stories may be based upon whimsy, but that doesn't mean they can't be called out for their lack of reality.

It is cute and fun and I very much enjoy it. 5/5 stars!
