  1. 033: Ready to get back to school and sharing awesome picture books. Keep them coming!

  2. I loved learning about you and Corey with the “Little Red” titles! I’ve never gotten to REALLY talk to you at the events in a way where I’d learn these things about you, Tara, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this 😀

  3. I am so delighted to have just discovered your podcast via Twitter! So inspiring. 🙂

  4. So inspiring thank you so much. I’m so happy I was told about this podcast 🙂

  5. Tara is always a fun listen, and perks my writing up. Thanks for sharing your interview Nick.

  6. I think my favorite classic children’s book character is Little Red Riding Hood, particularly if she’s in a more fierce retelling. She can be a pretty amazing heroine.

  7. Favorite classic book was a book with many fairy tales in it….Thumbelina was my favorite. I wanted to be her!
