Repeat Reads - July #kidlitpicks

If you listen to the podcast, or even just check out the links in the podcast recap posts, then you know all about #kidlitpicks/@kidlitpicks on Instagram! July's theme was Repeat Reads, and Book Nerd Mommy put together an AWESOME recap of all twenty members' favorite Repeat Reads.

Check out her full post!


The August theme for KidLitPicks is Unique Friendships
Friendships, of course, come in all different shapes and sizes, and there's no better medium for exploring these unique friendships than picture books. The people we meet during our lives can be transformative and ​life-altering, and finding the people we want to spend our time with is always a process unique to the individual.

Share your favorite books that feature Unique Friendships and tag #kidlitpicks to be featured!

The Podcast - Episode 18

The interview fun from the last episode spills over into this one, with Mel Schuit turning the questions around to me! More picture book fun and a super interesting question that I want you all to answer in the comments!

Listen to the podcast on iTunes or PodBean.

**NOTE: This is my first time recording a Skype interview for a podcast, so please let me know how it sounds! I tried to edit the volume controls so my voice wasn't booming, but I'm not sure how successful it was.***

ALSO! I mention on the podcast, but also want to reiterate here, that I will be taking a hiatus! I will still be active on social media (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook), but the blog and podcast will be quiet for a month. Show me love in the meantime so I know if I should continue this media venture!
