Review on Brain Burps: And Then It’s Spring

Oh boy, this is a good book. Which you’ll figure out after hearing my near-rapturous review. This book manages to pull together sweet-sad poetry and humor in just a few words, and the words are perfectly matched with Erin Stead’s illustrations. What I didn’t mention in my review is that the first few times we [...]

New review: A Strange Place to Call Home

New review today! Check out the Brain Burps About Books podcast to hear all about how the first time I read A Strange Place to Call Home by Marilyn Singer and Ed Young, I had no idea what to do with it. And then how I looked at how much Henry was loving it, just [...]

New Review on Brain Burps: The Obstinate Pen

Don’t you love it already? A book called The Obstinate Pen? Will you love it even more when I tell you that, because of this book, Henry and Eli now insult each other by saying, “You’re a yam-headed organ grinder!”? I would like to start some petition that 62% of the children’s books published every [...]

Jonah Lehrer, and me!

Jonah Lehrer and I are on Brain Burps About Books today! Ok, ok, so we’re not on at the same time: Katie is interviewing Jonah Lehrer (author of Imagine: How Creativity Works), and (separately) I do a review of Nursery Rhyme Comics. I do think it’s perfect that Katie picked this review out of the [...]

New Review on Brain Burps: Neville

I’ve got a new review up on Brain Burps About Books today: Neville, by the amazing Norton Juster (of Phantom Tollbooth fame), with such great illustrations by G. Brian Karas (and I was lying in bed last night having a panic attack that I totally mispronounced Karas — sorry, Mr. Karas) (I love doing audio [...]

Two new reviews up at Katie Davis’s podcast

Yeah, so I totally missed the fact that I had a review on Brain Burps About Books last week. Where is my head? I review Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s Al Pha’s Bet on last week’s episode. The episode is all about making ebooks, and it’s a super-technical episode, but worth listening to if you have any [...]

Recommendation: Barefoot Books Podcast

This is sort of a Children’s Book of the Week post. It’s high time I recommended the Barefoot Books podcast on here, because it’s such a lifesaver for us. You probably know the publisher Barefoot Books — they do a lot of folk tales and fairy tales, all very good. Well, they have a podcast [...]
