Best Book Ever

Nov 30, 2020

Today we’re changing up the format a bit. With the holidays coming up, it’s time to start thinking about gift giving. I invited a bunch of my favorite young Bookworms, ages 5-23, to tell me about their favorite books. I love talking to kids, and I love talking about books – so this episode was an absolute delight to record. I hope you will find plenty of books for all the young people in your life.

Remember your local indie bookstores when doing all of your shopping!
