My First Podcast Interview! I Give Tips on How to Help Kids Choose Books and I Share Some Favorite Titles

It was my honor to be included in a podcast with this mission statement:

“In this podcast, we share conversations with librarians, educators, and readers about the children’s books that can be bridges across our cultural divides…the books that can open minds and the books that can be the lifeline a child needs to remember they’re not alone.”

— Ann Braden and Saadia Faruqi

I spoke with Ann about the community that I work in, the challenges and advantages that we have to create new readers and books that are great entryways to reading.

“The connection can happen in so many different ways. It can happen with someone who is reading a really difficult book with endnotes and footnotes…or it can be as simple as a child opening up a picture book and connecting with the images.” –– Jennifer Haight

The podcast begins with recommendations from Saadia Faruqi about Ramadan. Saadia is a writer and mother who has a great depth of knowledge about children’s books.

I hope you enjoy the podcast. If you listen, please find us on Twitter and share your thoughts! Ann Braden, Saadia Faruqi, Jennifer Haight.
