Fantastic Friday: Encouraging Kids to Read

If you haven’t already read the post over on my Corgi Capers blog, I’m happy to share a very cool podcast I discovered recently.

CORGICAPERS1_VMULLER_FINALThe podcast is called Lu and Bean Read. Lu and Bean are two young girls who were having trouble finding a podcast to listen to about stories for kids. Their entrepreneurial mom decided to help them start their own. Now, they review books via an online podcast. They feature author interviews and have even opened up the opportunity for other kids to send in book reviews to be featured on the podcast. It’s a great opportunity to get more kids involved with reading. I would have loved the chance to listen to kids my age talking about books—not to mention the chance to record my own book review.

I’m honored that I had the chance to be interviewed about my kidlit mystery series, Corgi Capers. You can listen to the podcast (here), during which I talk to Lu and Bean and also read two of my favorite chapters from the book. If you have kids, or if you love kid books, it’s worth your time to check out the site.
