MTPR Kids

Information about MTPR children's programs, the Pea Green Boat and the Children's Corner.

Today on the Pea Green Boat, Naomi Lewin, host of Classics for Kids, will talk about musical fantasies. Originally, a musical fantasy was a piece that instrumentalists made up as they went along. Eventually, fantasies evolved into pieces that composers built out of various melodies they liked -- like the Scottish folk tunes that Max Bruch put into his Scottish Fantasy for violin and orchestra.

Hi everybody,

On the Pea Green Boat today, Braden came over from the Missoula Public Library and read three good books. Here are the titles, in case you want to go to the library and take the books out to reread them and enjoy the terrific illustrations:

My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza

Crankee Doodle by Tom Angleberger

Nothing by Mick Inkpen

Every Monday we're lucky to have  librarians visit and share their recent favorite stories.

Hi everybody,
It’s going to be an exciting week on the Pea Green boat. Lots of visitors. Take a look at what’s coming up.

On Tuesday, we’ll have Nature Notes with Jackie Wedell. In the past she’s talked about owls, otters and igloos. Tomorrow she’s going to talk about –well, I’ll let you find out for yourselves. Tune in!

On Wednesday, Janet Zupan, one of my favorite readers, will share, for the first time, a story she wrote herself.  It’s a really good one.
