Introducing the Mini Taco podcast

After 100 episodes of Taco Podcasts for authors, it’s great to do something for the kids. 

Each episode aims to inspire little people to use their big imaginations to read, write, draw and create!

We chat to awesome kids book creators who share their stories and creative tips. And connect kids to their favourite authors and illustrators.

This podcast is an excellent resource for educators to get kids excited about books and reading.

Why the name Tacos?

Reading with a Chance of Tacos was born out of Ken’s love of children’s books, which was born out of hundreds of afternoons with his son Max. 

They’d read together for hours, where at some point Max would ask, ‘Can we have tacos tonight, Dad?’
