Kidsmomo Podcast #26: “Lock and Load”

June 1st, 2010 by

From the Civil War to WWII to the Cold War — in honor of Memorial Day, we’re focusing on war stories in our latest podcast. So tune in for a glimpse into some lives that have been affected by war, including a decorated general, a girl who just wants to make it through the Cuban Missile Crisis, and even a pigeon (yes, a pigeon!).

  • Hidden in plain sight — aka our mystery book revealed
  • America against itself, and under fire — aka our war story picks (Bull Run and Countdown)
  • A related kid rec (Douglas Macarthur: An American Hero)
  • We honor the homing pigeons of the world

If you’ve read any of these, send in your book review. Or send in a review of your favorite series (or your favorite book in a series).

— Karen and Nancy

UPDATE 6/15/10: We revealed the answer to our Summer Series Mystery Book Theater in the “Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer” Podcast, so take a listen if you want to know the answer. Or just tune in if you want to hear Nancy get more excited about robot monkey servants than any adult really should.
