Welcome to Washington, Fina Mendoza by Kitty Felde

Welcome to Washington, Fina Mendoza

Welcome to Washington, Fina Mendoza is a middle grade book that introduces kids (and maybe parents) to what life is like on Capitol Hill. If you’re like most folks, the life of the Washington insiders may be kind of a mystery. Felde, the award winning host of one of my fave podcast, Book Club for Kids,  takes the mystery out of life in our nation’s capitol. Told through the eyes of the ten year old daughter of a California representative, you’ll learn the ins and outs of the day to day life of Capitol Hill senators.  That orange thing on the cover? That’s Senator Something, a lovable briard that helps our heroine get into shenanigans and cope with the new life on the east coast.  If you’re wanting a #political primer, this is the one.

Hey Boo, What’s New?

Hey Boo, What’s New?
I’m Back from Self Imposed Exile

Hey friends! I’ve missed you. I’m back after a month long sabbatical. I’ve had some issues develop during May that prevented me from blogging so I decided to take that time and get myself together. I’m in a better place now and I’m ready to share what I love with you! So, because I’m way behind, if I owe you a review or something, please sit tight, it’s coming. If you just wanna see what I’ve been reading, sit tight, it’s coming too.

 

The Cut with Pam Margolis

Meanwhile, I want to remind you that I have a podcast, did you know? Yep, it’s called The Cut with Pam Margolis and I’ll share the few episodes I’ve finished with you here. I love talking to people about books and I’m also discovering that I love audio engineering, but it’s a new skill that takes time to develop, much like skateboarding, which I can’t do. Can you picture me on a skateboard?

So while I’m getting all my bookish house in order for you, why don’t you download and listen to my podcast? I’ll post one every few days so you can catch up.

Here’s episode one with my friend  and associate librarian, Janeane Davis.  Her blog is Janeane’s World.
