Circle Round Podcast For Kids
The Circle Round Podcast For Kids was created and produced by parents of young children. WBUR’s Circle Round adapts carefully-selected folktales from around the world into sound- and music-rich radio plays for kids ages 4 to 10. Each 10- to 20-minute episode explores important issues like kindness, persistence, and generosity. And each episode ends with an activity that inspires a deeper conversation between children and grown-ups.
A bonus story from Hawaii, about the magic that happens when we show kindness to strangers in need.
If you’re looking for something extra to do while listening to today’s tale, ask a grown-up to print out the coloring page for this week’s story! You can find it at WBUR.org/circleround. At the end of this episode you’ll hear more about how to play “Kindness Bingo.”
We’ve been hearing a lot from our listeners around the world – listeners like you! And many of you have been asking for more stories to help you get through this time of social distancing, when we’re all spending a bunch more time at home than we’re used to.
Today we’re bringing you a special bonus episode of Circle Round. Our story is called “A Cup of Poi.” Poi is a popular food where our tale originally comes from: Hawaii, the only island state in the United States. It’s all about the magic that happens when we’re kind to others… especially when we’ve never met them before!
