This time on The Children’s Hour we visit with the inspiring and talented children’s musician, author, motivational speaker and change-maker SaulPaul, a musician with a message.  The Kids Crew learn about his triumph over adversity, and challenge him to compose a freestyle rap while on the air with us!

Learning from adversity, and inspiring with positivity are the messages behind SaulPaul’s music for kids. An author, motivational speaker and change-maker, SaulPaul is changing the sound of children’s music, while being a force for good in his community. We spend the whole hour learning about his life, work, motivation and hear some of his incredible music.

As the Kids Crew learn about his triumph over adversity, we challenge him to compose a freestyle rap while on the air with us! 

Then Kids Crew member Evan Daitz reviews the book A Whale of the Wild by Roseanne Parry. His Kids Crew review ranks the book on our green chili rating system: 1 being the worst and 5 being the best. Evan loves to read books critically, and we find out if Roseanne Parry’s book makes the grade for Evan. 

We’ve got an hour of excellent music in a show that will inspire you to Be The Change!
