Hello!! My son Beau and I have listened to Every Single episode and we always wait for the new ones anxiously!! we are a homeschooling family and we have always read together every day. We read everything, including the classics which he follows beautifully for a 7 year old. YOUR podcast only made us fall so much more in love with classic storytelling. (Oh, and for the past few years we have also been making up our own stories and taking turns completing a story: I suggest this to all parents-such a lovely bonding experience!) I KNOW my son would love a booksigned by you! and I 100% know because when he heard about the drawing this month he was so excited. Bless him. And bless you! Thank you Kathleen!!
