RAR #167 Christmas with Tomie dePaola and Winter at RAR
Do you feel it in the air? The seasons are a-changing...and it's just about the best time of year for reading with a cup of cocoa, next to a crackling fire.
(I suppose in the Southern Hemisphere it's lemonade and beach reading... but there's no bad season for reading, right?)
We think you're going to be very excited about what we have coming up in RAR this winter, plus a brand new addition to RAR Premium - Christmas School! Listen in while I tell you all about it.
In this episode, I'm sharing:
* an invitation to slow down and simplify this season (yes, please!)* all about the first-ever RAR Christmas School* a preview of what's coming in 2021 (if you have a child who struggles perfectionism, WE SEE YOU-- and don't miss January in RAR Premium)
