Keep up the good work!

I can't wait to share this podcast with my teacher friends! I now look forward to listening to a new podcast as much as I enjoy ready the daily blog. I know it's a lot of work, and I wish I could help. Thank you for providing this quality resource to teachers and students.

Totally inspired

This podcast inspires me as a reader and as a teacher every time I listen. The book talks are my favorite part, yet each episode has opened my eyes and ears to literary topics I did not realize I should be thinking about. I have already recommended this podcast to my fellow lead literacy teachers in our district and to my mother, an avid reader and reading tutor. I am looking forward to next year when the schedule will be regular and there will be more frequent episodes! I can't get enough!

Librarians will enjoy this!

I love to listen to educators because they are on the front-lines with our kids. While I am not an educator, I am responsible for selection of materials for children at my local library and the Nerdy Book Club blog and the podcast give me the opportunity to see what is “hot” in children’s literature and to see what is trending. Librarianship and education go hand in hand and I love the ideas the Club provides. The podcast is excellent and is great for anyone, teacher or librarian, who is trying to get books into the hands of kids.
