Thanks for the Review!
Allison and Megan’s quality waffle about books, life, libraries and children’s literature is the highlight of my week. As a time-poor teacher & mum of two bookworms, I leave every podcast inspired with tips to help my students and a raft of authors to discover. Thank you for inspiring me and ensuring that I’m ‘that’ person smiling and laughing aloud whilst sat on the sidelines!!
