One Bad Mother

This week on One Bad Mother, Books! They can be really helpful! Gwen Glazer, the recommendations librarian from the NYC public Library and co-host of the podcast The Librarian Is In, joins as our cohost and we explore how books can help us prepare our kids from the simplest of milestones to some of the harder issues. Gwen brings us suggestions for books about refugees and immigration for our kids and proves it isn’t just Biz who can’t find books about parenting by people of color. Plus Biz has another author in the house and so many announcements!

Gwen’s recommendations!:
"16 Books about Refugees for Kids & Adults"
"#PARENTINGSOWHITE: Where Are the Black Parenting Memoirs?" by Nefertiti Austin in Mater Mea magazine online

Funny memoirs from parents of color:
Child Please: How Mama’s Old-School Lessons Helped Me Check Myself Before I Wrecked Myself by Ylonda Gault Caviness
Toddlers Are Assholes: It's Not Your Fault by Bunmi Latidan
Postcards from Cookie by Caroline Clarke
