    #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

    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
