Abby’s family added kittens to their family!

Abby read the Charm of Magpies fantasy series by KJ Charles and Sarah listened to the YA novel-in-verse Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo (and can also recommend The Poet X by the same author).

Talking to kids about tough stuff

Inspired by a listener question, we discuss how we talk to our kids about tough stuff–politics, current events, race, gender, sex, cancer, and death. Links we mentioned + books our families love that we didn’t list in the show:

Eating lately

Sarah is becoming a Trader Joe’s convert, especially their hot and sweet pickled jalapenos.

Abby found a spinach dal her whole family loves.
