This week on The Children's Hour, Katie and the Crew learn about the Little Free Library network with Shelby King, program director and coordinator of the Impact Library Program. Little Free Library is based in Hudson, Wisconsin, but has over 100,000 Libraries in over 100 countries. More than 200,000,000 books have been shared through Little Free Libraries worldwide.

Their program champions access to all, diversity through their Read in Color Program, and working with the community. Find the nearest Little Free Library near you and find plans and help to create your own!

Airdrie reviews Rowen And The Rascal Lion, and Evan gives us a review of A Wolf Called Wander. Plus the kids in the Extinction Diaries educate us about the critically endangered Maui dolphin.

Mixed with excellent music celebrating books, libraries, and reading.  

 

The Children's Hour is a weekly, educational and entertaining public radio program for kids and families. Using excellent music, expert guests, talented kids and a format that is a proven success in growing and keeping listeners of all ages engaged.

The Children's Hour includes kids in all aspects of the production. We're dedicated to filling educational gaps, by focusing on civics, STEM, culture, and performance, using interviews with scientists, astronauts, civil servants, cultural educators, performers and others, and weaving shows together with a wide variety of musical genres.

Kids on our crew and in our community contribute content, design programming, and cohost our shows, live in public venues, and in studio.

We are happy to make station tags. Just reach out to us at info@childrenshour.org
