  1. Thanks so much for this wonderful book talk with Philip Stead. Thanks for filling the world with positive words and noticing the raw beauty of them. Hopefully, kids everywhere (big and small) will catch the creative kindness planted in every book you share!

  2. I have four horses (was supposed to have three but my adopted mustang arrived pregnant). My morning routine with them takes about 20 minutes going as fast as possible. However, since discovering your podcast, I’ve slowed it down to about 42 minutes. Horse chores have now become one of my favorite and most inspirational times of the day. Thank you for your thoughtful conversations.
