#46 – Alphabet Nonsense

Sail in a sieve to the land of Alphabet Nonsense with Edward Lear’s Nonsense Alphabet! On this episode you’ll learn a bit about Edward Lear and you’ll hear Buttons & Figs kids share nonsense letter poems of their own, inspired by Lear. The kids also tell you how they wrote their poems, so you can write them too. And, if you need a little help remembering the letters of the English alphabet, then we got you covered with A BETTER Alphabet song than the one everyone seems to like so much! Jonathon Roberts from Composer Dad podcast and I teamed up with some Buttons & Figs kids to write what we think is a WAY better tune…but you can decide. Be sure to check out “His Shoes Were Far Too Tight” (public library)a collection of Edward Lear poems, compiled by Daniel Pinkwater, illustrated by Calef Brown. Now go play with letters…no words…no letters…no words….just go play.
