Fun Kids Book Worms

Hosted ByBex Lindsay

Hear about the latest kids books, meet the authors and listen to them reading their stories. 

Join Bex from the children’s radio station Fun Kids as she meets top authors who tell her about their books and also read us chapters from them!

Fun Kids Book Worms is a great vehicle to reach vociferous readers that combines book reviews with interviews of the country’s famous authors and readings from their brilliant books.

As an environment, the podcast is perfect for publishers wanting to introduce children to new titles. This can be in the form of sponsor credits, spot advertising or sponsored readings/audiobook extracts.

Hachette used the podcast last Summer to talk about their new titles…
