For Curious Kids of All Ages
Coming to you soon! This new project grew out of the "Curious Songs for Curious Kids" CD and songbook, published last year. There is a song where a curious giraffe asks lots of questions. Whenever I've taught that song the audience comes up with more questions and more verses! This may seem like a show for younger kids, but our cast includes kids from six to twelve years old, so it will have a wider appeal. The intention of the program is: (1) to bring a kids from a variety of backgrounds together, and (2) to use stories, songs, and interviews to discuss our questions and learn more from each other and local resources.
We have recorded the first two episodes at Amherst Media, our local community TV station. Here are the questions that have come up so far: Why do some folks have plenty, and some some never have enough? What can help? Why don't more people realize that real beauty is on the inside, not on the outside? These are not simple questions, but these are thoughtful kids. They will let us know where their questions want to go. Maybe the adults will take time to listen!
When the episodes have been edited and credits added, we will launch this new program. I'll let you know when you can tune in, if you are in the Amherst, MA area. Or a link will be provided for those farther away. There will be the opportunity for viewers to send in their questions and observations, too. Aren't you curious to tune in?
