HBook Podcast – Your Stories

Are you a teacher or librarian? We want to hear from you!

What fabulous books do you use in the classroom or during story time? Why?

Send a 30 second audio clip to telling us what books you love, what books you find useful, or what books you’ve discovered recently and we’ll play your suggestions in an upcoming podcast episode.

We’re so excited to hear from you!


If you don’t know how to make voice memos, here’s a handy how-to and also non-iPhone-specific instructions (<– you may have to scroll down)

Once the recording is complete, send that 30 second audio file to and we’ll play it on the podcast!
