Little News Ears

Little News Ears is a podcast for parents and teachers who want young children to learn about the news. Far from a kiddie show, it was made for kids (and adults) who want to laugh! The current line-up of BoxerBlu and Bram is geared for 4 year-olds, but all ages should be able to enjoy the show. Unlike most cartoons, each year Bram will get older, so the news can grow with your children as they get older. Little News Ears hits the big issues in news with sensitivity toward different points of view.First time listening? Please be aware that Little News Ears aims to be positive, inspiring, challenging, funny, and educational--but it is something quite different than typical media for a 4 year old and up. Complex concepts are broken down whenever possible. War, violence, and generally nightmarish things are de-emphasized, if not ignored completely.
