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.
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.
