The Children's Book Podcast

Laurel Snyder (@LaurelSnyder) and Chuck Groenink (@ChuckGroenink) share HUNGRY JIM. In this new picture book, a boy awakens to realize that he is a lion... and that he is hungry. Moreover, his appetite seems insatiable and his urges irresistible. If you detect a hint of Sendak, you won’t be wrong. But this is the kind of story where Sendak and childhood and relationships and all of the little bits that make up you were all swallowed up. And the story that’s been churning inside feels a bit subversive and yet totally relatable. You’re gonna like this one. You can access even more information about this book and its author by visiting Thank you to this week's sponsors: Little Feminist Storyteller Academy And to the generous support from our Patrons. --- Send in a voice message:
