#52 – The Nonsense Show at Velma Teague Library

For this episode kids at the Velma Teague Library in Glendale, Arizona wrote and recorded nonsense poems inspired by Eric Carle’s “The Nonsense Show” (public library/indie bookstore). Be warned, this book of nonsense brings forth all sorts of, well, how shall I say, Nonsense! You’ll also hear great nonsense book recommends, and a public service announcement about staying hydrated. What? You say poppycock, fiddle-faddle, surreal cereal?! You’re welcome.

The Nonsense Show by Eric Carle

All nonsense on this episode was written by kids taking part in Buttons & Figs creative wordplay workshops at Velma Teague Library in the Spring of 2020, yup, in the time before. These voices are a nice reminder that we’ll gather again. Stay safe, sane, hydrated, and wear a mask.
