For kids, by kids
I had been looking for fun (educational) podcasts to listen to in the car with my 4-year-old when I found this on a list of recommended podcasts for teachers to use in their classes. My little guy and I gave it a try, and we loved it! We've listened to the podcasts on space, ants, and respect so far, and have just downloaded a bunch more. Kids share what they know about the subject and even tell some related jokes, and it is organized so well. It is quick-paced and fun, and keeps my kid's attention while he learns along with it (he calls the willowcasts "kid podcasts"). Thanks kids! Hopefully there will be more to come!
