I forgot to mention this in the previous entry: one thing that beats NPR is the audio version of Gerard Jones' book, Ginny Good.
Marta and I have been listening to it for a few weeks now (we've got it on disc), and I guess Marta will experience deja vu when she grows up and meets Gerard in person, hears his voice.
Thank you, Gerard!
P.S. For those who don't know, Ginny Good isn't a kids' book, far from it. But it'd be really silly to worry about Marta listening to it now. I'd rather not hear or read anything about our politicians or about that crazy fuck Ahmadinejad - because that stuff makes me really mad every once in a while and I'm sure Marta can feel it.
And Gerard's book - it's awesome.
