The Children’s Literature Podcast is a grown-up discussion of children’s books, aimed not at kids but at grown-up book lovers, teachers, parents, and maybe even a few savvy teenagers. This podcast looks into the background and cultural context of a story, helping educators and parents to deliver deeper understanding to the kids they teach. With each episode you’ll find lessons, activities, and fun that can bring a story to life whether it’s being read at home or taught in the classroom.
Each episode could be used as a Language Arts or Literature class for a teenaged student, or to help a parent or teacher prepare to introduce a work to students. The accompanying activities could fill one or more class periods and tap into other subjects like science, history, and math as much as possible. The Children’s Literature Podcast will always be free to listeners.
