On this edition of The Children’s Hour, we get puzzled by the world’s most syndicated daily puzzle maker, David L. Hoyt, author of the Jumble Puzzle found in more than 600 newspapers every day, worldwide. We’ll create a puzzle together during the show that kids can play! Plus we learn about the Doomsday Seed Vault from our friends at the Extinction Diaries.
David L. Hoyt has created a special webpage for Children’s Hour listeners to dig in deeper, and get puzzled. This site includes the puzzle we created together on this episode: https://www.davidlhoyt.com/childrenshour
For KUNM listeners, we also hear from kids in Mrs. Charles’ 2nd grade classroom, who will teach us about the first Hispanic astronaut, Ellen Ochoa. Listen to their work right here:
The Children’s Hour is supported by the Cultural Services Department and the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund at the City of Albuquerque, city councilor Pat Davis, as well as Bernalillo County, New Mexico’s Commission. We also have support from Electric Playhouse and numerous foundations also support our work including the Infinite Gesture Fund, The Limestone Fund, The Laughing Buddha Fund, and the Entheogen Fund. Thank you to our listeners who also support us!
