I really enjoyed being a guest author on your podcast! I look forward to hearing it, what a great resource for a school to have! Thank you for inviting me, Best wishes Lucy Author of Swop The Satsuma - Sized Secret
I found you on Twitter. Listened to your podcast and thought it was great. I love your reviews and you’ve chosen some great books. I love Joshua Siegal’s poem and was glad to hear you do too.
I loved hearing myself and my friends Kanefer, Sintusha and Moaaz who helped me do this!
What an amazing episode! I loved hearing children's reviews on books that they have read and enjoyed. Especially, hearing the challenges that Bear Grylls had to go through and how he overcame them. I can't wait for the next episode! Well done!
Just listened to Episode 1 - what a terrific first podcast and I love your book recommendations. I'm already looking forward to listening to the next episode! Well done to all involved - everyone should give it a listen. :-)
