Just One More Book!!

This wonderful audio-resource of three podcasts a week about children's books is brought to us by Andrea and Mark Blevis, who go every week to their favorite coffee shop, and talk about books they and their daughter love. The podcasts include interviews, comments from young readers, themed discussions, and much, much more. Just One More Book is a treasure trove, an audio archive of evolving conversations about the work and delight of creating and sharing books for children. Past interviews include Jack Prelutsky, Audrey Wood, Dayal Kaur Khalsa, Helen Oxenbury, Sheree Fitch, and many, many other great voices.

My interview with Mark, up this morning (to my surprise. What? Me? Kicking off the year?) focuses on storytelling, writing for children, and the Peace Page on my web site, my own little effort to cope with the state of our world and the never-ending conflicts that are beginning to feel like the addictions of those in power.

  1. I absolutely love your interview on JOMB! I was a teacher of young children for 14 years and framed my teaching from a critical literacy perspective. Your comments regarding creating space for children to have conversations that have importance in their lives, especially those difficult social issues, truly resonated with me.

    Wonderful work! Thanks so much.
