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.
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.
