spooky, spoooky, spoooookkkyy!
listen to our spooky halloween episode and read “Black and Bittern Was Night” by Robert Heidbreder, illustrated by John Martz. and then…..see if you can figure out the meaning to all of the nonsense this Halloween!!! Bah-ha-ha-ha!!!
sail in a sieve, with this last bit of summer nonsense, back to the Oak Park Public Library! using inspiration from “Dr. Knickerbocker and Other Rhymes”, a Canadian collection of over 100 rhymes, riddles, jump rope rhymes, taunts, tongue twisters and nonsense verse, selected by David Booth, illustrated by Maryann Kovalski, the kids at the library wrote some great tongue twisters…try saying them faster than your friends!
sail in a sieve with twin 8 year old hosts Luke and Oliver….or is it Oliver and Luke?! to the land of Math Nonsense! They share some crazy math jokes and wacky math verse from Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s book “Math Curse”. Does tunafish + tunafish = fournafish?!
sail in a sieve for jokes at the library! the Oak Park Public Library invited Buttons & Figs in for a podcast petting zoo, where families could listen together to other great podcasts for kids….and to record a few jokes from Michael Dahl’s joke books. Check them out! be sure to sign up for summer reading at a Public Library near you!
rev up that sieve and #hittheroad with the buttons & figs kids as they share “Poem-mobiles: Crazy Car Poems” by J. Patrick Lewis and Douglas Florian, pictures by Jeremy Holmes. Can you design a crazy nonsense car of your own?!
