Every summer, we invite our summer interns to pick their favorite Book Club for Kids episode and tell us why they love it. This summer, it’s Hannah Matzechi’s turn. Hannah not only has been helping with Book Club for Kids, she’s been stage managing our newest venture: a 7-part episodic podcast THE FINA MENDOZA MYSTERIES that will premiere in October.
The worst summer vacation ever? Being stuck in the middle of a New Mexico desert with the crabbiest grandfather on planet earth. But there are also magical bees that promise the end of of a drought. Students from Belvedere Elementary School in Falls Church, Virginia discuss HOUR OF THE BEES and writer Lindsay Eager tells where the tale began. Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham from New Mexico is celebrity reader. Kitty Felde is host.
