Love the theme

Makes you bop your head shimmy your shoulders a bit as you start adding books to your TBR pile. Excellent podcast, it’s helped me a lot with doing juvenile reader advisory and my favorite so far is the audiobook episode. Thanks guys!

A must-listen for library staff working with children!

As a Children's Library Associate at a public library, this podcast has helped me find some incredible new pieces to read for myself and to recommend to some of our young patrons. The diversity in the books shared by Karina and Matthew is something that is very much needed in our community, and I have been making note of the books that we have in our collection, as well as those we don't so I can make sure we order them. As a future Children's Librarian, I appreciate the passion that is shared within the podcast, and every time I listen to a new episode, I learn something that I didn't know before. I cannot help recommending this podcast to my coworkers in the children's department. Keep up the amazing work!

Relevance To The Classroom

Since I am frequently talking books, Kid Lit These Days came into my life at just the right time. This next year will be my first as the Library Media Specialist after 15 years in primary classrooms. I appreciate the candor Karina and Matthew bring to current issues and their excellent book recommendations. My TBR list continues to grow with each new episode, thank you! This podcast is sure to give me even more books to talk about with students and colleagues.

Encouraging and challenging

I found this podcast via Instagram, and felt inspired right out of the gate. Karina has an eloquent and articulate presence, and Matthew is exceptionally enthusiastic about both books and children. I can hear delight and wonder in his voice, which warms my heart as a parent and educator. I was not aware of soft censorship, and am thankful to have heard this explanation and personal story. It caused a surprising level of grief, but that translates to compassion. Karina experienced it as well, and felt compelled to share. Go and listen. You won’t be disappointed.

Great resource for librarians!

I was so excited to hear Bookriot was giving us a kid lit podcast! I love the format and the enthusiasm that Karina and Matthew bring is fantastic to listen to. I’ve added so many books to my library thanks to their recommendations.

Eye opening and real!

I am a 3rd grade teacher in Utah and I have really enjoyed listening to this podcast. The school I teach at is quite uniform. As a result, I rarely have to confront some of the tough issues they have talked about so far. I also rarely hear this side of the story. I have loved listening to and wrestling with these ideas that are not typical in my environment and getting book suggestions to open the world to my students. Karina and Matthew are so kind and positive and their love for books and for people really come through in every sentence. Also, thank you for writing all the books you mention in the show notes! This is a major lifesaver and keeps me from frantically scrawling down book titles while driving.

These are the experts!

I was glad to find this podcast! As a school librarian, I was a Karina Yan Glaser and Matthew Winner fan already, and to hear them talk about books together is so fun. Some of the books I know, and some are new to me. I love when Matthew talks about pairings. I look forward to more episodes.
