The Free Podcast where kids talk about books
This week: orphan island - laurel snyder
Would you like to grow up on a desert island with no adults to boss you around? That's the locale for our book "Orphan Island" by Laurel Snyder. Our readers from Percy Julian Middle School in Oak Park, Illinois talk about the challenges of growing up and try to get our writer to disclose some of the answers to the mysteries in the book. Congressman Adam Schiff from California is our celebrity reader.

What folks say about us:
"Thank you, again, for all that you do for our students. I know that the 5th graders were beyond thrilled to have had the opportunity to talk about what they've read and express themselves to someone who is very interested in their opinions, but most importantly, in them."
- Flordeliza L. Cadiz Marks, Library Media Specialist, Maury Elementary School, Washington DC
