On Saturday mornings, from 7-10 a.m., Pawling Public Radio offers programming especially designed for children. Volunteer contributors read original short stories, as well as classic fairy tales, like “The Princess and the Pea,” and “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” Listen to Aesop’s fables like “The Crow and the Pitcher,” “The Wind and the Sun,” and “The Hare and the Tortoise.” Many clever tales offer important moral and ethical lessons like “The Fir Tree and the Bramble,” “You are Beautiful as You Are,” and “The Fox and the Crow.”
In the poetry corner, listen to well-loved poems from Robert Louis Stevenson’s “A Child’s Garden of Verses.” You will hear “The Swing,” “Picture Books in Winter,” “My Shadow,” and “Windy Nights,” to name just a few. Poems by Christina Rossetti are also featured.
Music especially for children is woven throughout the program. Musical versions of “Shenandoah,” “Puff the Magic Dragon,” “Kumbaya,” and “Scarborough Fair,” are featured.
