Top 10 Tuesday: Picture Book Episodes of the All The Wonders Podcast

October 24, 2017

I began a children's book podcast back in the summer of 2013 called Let's Get Busy, named at the time for my now-defunct Busy Librarian blog. Several years later I cofounded a children's literature website (All The Wonders) and not long after that we rebranded the podcast as All The Wonders: The Children's Book Podcast. Now, today, I'm looking out at publishing the 400th episode of the podcast (November 3rd, 2017 with cartoonist Tillie Walden). So I thought it would be nice to spend the next few weeks celebrating the episodes that have resonated most with podcast listeners.


I've linked to all of the books and the podcast episodes below. If one of these books missed your radar, why not try it out? If one of these bookmakers has caught your attention, why not listen as they share the story behind the book? And if one of your favorite episodes didn't make the Top Ten, why not share it in the comments below to let others know what episodes they should be sure not to miss?


Bring this list to your local library or independent bookstore and add your own favorites in the comments below!
