Put on your parkas and two face masks. You’ll need them for warmth in this episode as the mamas chill with a couple of Middle Grade survival adventure books set in the dead of winter. In one book, our young hero lives in a frozen fjord just as life is about to go berserk, and in the second book, the hero, plucked from the fjord and relocated to the prairie, battles a blizzard. If you can handle the cold, hang on until the end for a chat about reading in the time of COVID.
