Great book reviews!
The hosts review books that they have used in their family. Mostly the reveiws are short and very specific. They go into detail about the art and language of the books. Sometimes they have user review shows where listeners call in with their own reviews of children's books. If you have small children or grandchildren and are looking for good books, this is a great podcast to help you find the right ones.
