Chapter Books, Picture Books and “Warning: This Podcast Contains Poop”



In this episode, we start to talk about what we’re reading but veer off into our childhoods and talk about the books we loved and remember. We also talk a little bit about what our kids are ‘reading.’ As a bonus, you get to hear Cari mimic musical baby toys and Beth repeats some of her four-year-old’s favorite jokes.

Other subtitles for consideration:

“I would never get to take a shower if there was no tv.” ~ Cari

“The English major in me left the house as soon as the poop jokes started.” ~ Beth

    A Wrinkle in Time is unfortunately one of those books that did not age well for me. I loved and adored it as a child, and I certainly can still see how it is a great children’s book, but for me as an adult? Sadly, no.

    Also, I greatly enjoyed The Composer is Dead and often listen to the music tracks by themselves. So fun!
