How do we stay calm and centered during times of anxiety, and how do we practice being peaceful? The Children’s Hour Kids Crew explore strategies together, and with Andy Mason, a singer songwriter from Santa Fe New Mexico who helps kids find their inner strength through music.
We also have a visit with our puzzle maker Riya Joshi, and we have two book reviews from kids on the crew. Illuminata reviews “If I Were a Tree, What Would I Be?” by Margaret Cheasebro, and Evan brings us his comments about “Dylan’s Birthday Present” by Dr. Victor D.O. Santos.
The kids in the Extinction Diaries focus on the Florida Grasshopper Sparrow, a tiny bird fighting for survival.
With great music by Betty Cook Clark, Wookiefoot, Elliot Park’s latest release, Martin Sexton, Andy Mason, Ketsa, The Mosaic Project, Jack Fetterman and the in Hi-Fi Music Direction, Peter Alsop, Nancee Kahler, and Charity And The JAMband.
