    #45 - Holiday Poem Play at Velma Teague Library

    #45 - Holiday Poem Play at Velma Teague Library

    Sail with us this holiday to the Velma Teague Library in Glendale Arizona where we share holiday play inspired by the classic Christmas poem, "The Night Before Christmas" by Clement Moore. But of course we don't just read the poem, we play! Listen in as these Buttons & Figs kids come up with their own reindeer names, and using the poem as inspiration, they set sail to write their own original stories. We hope you'll head to the library this holiday and read The Night Before Christmas so sugar plums will dance and sing in your imagination. May poetry and play come your way this holiday. Till we meet again in 2020, happy new year from Buttons & Figs.

    #44 - Alliteration Play with Brainstorming Bella and her Fabulous Friends

    #44 - Alliteration Play with Brainstorming Bella and her Fabulous Friends

    Sail with Brainstorming Bella and her Fabulous Friends as they steer our sieve to the land of alliteration. Bella, a Buttons & Figs fan, begged and beguiled her classmates at the West End Montessori school in Richmond, Virginia into hosting this episode of alliterative fun. You'll get to hear them define alliteration, play with alliteration and challenge you to write your own alliteration too. If you'd like to send in your own perfect poem, call 623-282-4080 and leave your little lighthearted lines. No go play. www.buttonsandfigs.com

    #43 - Nonsense Play with Calef Brown

    #43 - Nonsense Play with Calef Brown

    On this episode we're sailing our sieve to the land of Nonsense with Calef Brown's latest book, "Up Versus Down: Poems, Painting and Serious Nonsense." Calef's nonsense verse shook up our minds, inspiring us to gather wacky words and play. Buttons & Figs kids show you how we played with word associations in order to write nonsense verse of our own - we hope you'll give it a try at home. Calef has great advice if you'd like to write too, be sure to listen to his whole interview. Read all Calef Brown's books aloud (13 to be exact!)for a super, earlicious treat (not to mention reading 13 books would be a nifty little feat.) www.buttonsandfigs.com
