Show 4: Putting Life Into Words
Finding the fun of reading and writing can be a challenge. By incorporating puppets and voices, making up songs, playing word games and creating poems, this show's guests prove that words can excite children, that poetry isn't just for grownups and that it's okay (even encouraged) for adults to let go and be silly. Guests include poet
Steven Ratiner.
