March 9, 2023

In episode 009 of the Your Kid’s Next Read podcast:

Should I worry about re-reading?

Re-reading for kids: good or bad? Some kids like to re-read books they love – to the point where you might worry they’ll wear a rut in the bookshelf. But is it something to be concerned about? Allison and Megan look at the reasons kids like to re-read favourites and whether you need to move them on.

Plus, Megan has some audio book recommendations for your holiday car trips and Allison has tips for teaching young writers to time travel.
