Today, I’m hoping to tell you about some authors/illustrators you may not have heard about before!

These aren’t necessarily new authors, but they may be new to you.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • picture books, middle grade books and even books for your tweens and teens – I’m covering ALL the bases!
  • graphic novel suggestions that you’ll approve of (and that your kids will like)
  • a couple of favorites from our house, including one book that my 5-year-old carried around for weeks
  • plus (admittedly, my favorite part) my 4-year-old twins chatting about a book we often read 3 times in a row

A couple takeaways from this episode …

  • “Nobody Likes a Goblin is one of the best ways I know to calm my little kids when they’re throwing a fit.” Have tried Sarah’s trick yet? When a little one is melting down, grab a book and start reading – don’t announce; don’t ask. Just read, and wait for the story to do its magic.
