Season One of the Reading Small Talk with Amy Julia Becker podcast is an abridged audio version of Small Talk. Each week, I’ll read one chapter in hopes that these stories and thoughts will encourage those of you who are at home with little ones in this season of isolation and social distancing. Small Talk: Learning From My Children About What Matters Most is a series of reflections from my past few years of parenting. It is not a how-to guide. It is not filled with advice. It is, I hope, a word of encouragement that good things can emerge out of the hard but ordinary everyday moments.
