In this episode of #ReadingWithYourKids we are celebrating the Nearly Departed, Long Names and a pair of Creatures named Pickle Juice and Patty Cakes. First up we speak with José Pablo Iriarte, he author of the debut #MiddleGrade #Novel Benny Ramirez and the Nearly Departed. Jose tells us that Benny Ramírez can see dead people . . . Well, one dead person, anyway. A hilarious and heartwarming story about a boy who can suddenly see the ghost of his famous musician grandfather! Jose talks about the book, his hometown of Miami and his thoughts on why tweens love spooky stories! We also welcome Suma Subramaniam, author of My Name Is As Long As A River. Suma tells us this book celebrates how special our names are. She also gives us a look inside the varied cultures of India. Heather Marie closes the show by telling us about her delightful new series inspired by her two puppies Pickle Juice and Patty Cakes. She tells us her dogs went through difficult medical issues as puppies. She started this series to help teach kids to never give up, always be kind and to learn to accept differences in others.
