    1. I know! She’s amazing–so many good ideas, there was no way I could limit it to only 30 mins! (But it was still in the 30s, right?? 39 minutes…ha!)

    1. Thank you so much! I saw the review and loved it.

      I loved your article! So poignant. My mom had a bone marrow transplant when I was six-years-old, and she recorded our favorite storybooks on cassette tapes for us so we could listen to her voice reading to us at night. What a treasured memory. I love the idea of an army of books to keep our children safe!
