Hi. I'm Matthew, host of the Children's Book Podcast and an elementary school librarian. I believe in the way that stories can help us feel seen, understood, and valued. Every kid deserves that. And every kid deserves to see themselves, their family, their experiences, their beliefs, their friends, and their community reflected not only in the pages of a book, but in the lives lived by the authors and illustrators behind those books. Enjoy the show! And share it with a friend, a teacher, or a librarian.
