Kidsmomo Podcast #48: “Boys Will Be Boys”

May 17th, 2011 by

“Let’s hear it for the boys!” Oh, wait, you probably don’t get that reference because it’s from an ’80s song and that was WAY before you were born. Well, now we feel really old…

But not matter — we’ll never be too old for cheese puff poetry, public vomiting, and monkey abduction. We’ve got all that and more in our latest podcast, all about books starring guys!

Children’s Book Week Giveaway!

May 8th, 2011 by

A couple days ago, we posted a recap of our amazing night at the Children’s Choice Book Awards Gala. We spoke of the all-star authors and illustrators, the singing, the cross-dressing, and of course the winners.
