Earth Day from Kids' Perspectives - PKTR 26

Well, we were wrong, this was actually our 26th show, but who's counting.

The topic was Earth Day (which was officially celebrated on April 22, 2008).

Download the show to hear a wide variety of ideas, thoughts and suggestions from some tweens (and a mom) about how we can do just a little to help the environment a lot.

Some of the websites you'll hear about (and some others which we like but didn't have time to get to) include the following:

Special thanks to our guest caller, Nadege, for contributing some terrific tween perspectives!

More Work to Be Done

The co-hosts of Parents and Kids Talk Radio are consumed by a project that will prevent them from hosting the show live this week. Instead, we'll rebroadcast one of our most popular shows, Perfect Picture Books.

Thanks for staying tuned!

Pet Peeves and Poetry - PKTR 25

Do you have any pet peeves? Listen to this podcast to hear our top peeves. They may surprise you.

Then, at the halfway mark, after all that complaining, we balance the show with a discussion of poetry. It is National Poetry Month after all...

In today's show, we'll tell you about our experience with a poet who used to be one of our favorites...until we met him. Why does this guy go out on tour? Not very pleasant. You'll have to listen to the show to find out who he is and why we will never buy another one of his books.

Here are some of the books we mention in the show:

Joyful Noise by Paul Fleischman

Let There Be Light by Jane Breskin Zalben

Tales from Shakespeare by Tina Packer

J. Patrick Lewis's books (like Please Bury Me in the Library)

and Shel Silverstein's books (like Falling Up).

Join us again next week on Parents and Kids Talk Radio.

Thanks for listening!
