May 10, 2010 - Children's Book Week

May 10 - 16 is Children's Book Week! Celebrated since 1919, and brought to you now by Every Child a Reader, because "a great nation is a reading nation." We couldn't agree more!

May is also Get Caught Reading month! Supported by the Association of American Publishers, the Get Caught Reading campaign reminds people of all ages how much fun it is to read!

The free song this week was:
"Paws Claws Scales and Tales" by Monty Harper

Monty Harper: Paws Claws Scales & Tales

This week's podcast episode (click to listen).

Here's an extra smile for you today because May 12 is Limerick Day!
Two limericks by Monty:

Everyone lend me your ear
'Tis the birthday of old Edward Lear
His beard, it was frightful
His limericks, delightful
So let us all give him a cheer!

A family once set up a trial
For dealing out ditties with style
One free song a week
To people who seek
Good music, good fun, and a smile!

Send us your original limerick and we'll read it on the show (must be family friendly)!
(Here's a link with instructions for writing limericks.)

Please vote for the best jingle in the USA Science and Engineering Festival jingle competition. Monty's is the last one, letter G. Vote for it if you like it best!
