Sarah, who writes one of my very favorite blogs, Amongst Lovely Things, which is just bursting with beauty, truth and wisdom, has just started the Read-Aloud Revival podcast, which focuses on building a family culture around books, and especially on reading to older children, who often miss out on this cozy part of family life because we assume that if they're reading independently, they don't need us to read to them anymore. (I personally have never assumed that because I consider reading to my children one of the best parts of parenting. There are many things I don't do with particular excellence or even skill in the mothering realm, but by gum, I can sit on the couch with my cup of tea while they color or build with Lego and read to them from The Chronicles of Narnia.)
If I tell you that her very first guests are Andrew Pudewa from the Institute for Excellence in Writing and Adam Andrews from the Center for Lit, where Ian takes his online literature discussion courses, will you be sold?
Now, you have to tell me if you have any favorite podcasts I should be trying out. I have a lot of meals to cook in that little kitchen of mine, my friends. Don't be shy.
