Little News Ears is a podcast for parents, teachers, and anybody who want to learn about the news in a simple way. Far from a kiddie show, it was made for kids (and adults) who want to laugh! The newest episodes are always on https:/LittleNewsEars.com!
We have an eccentric cast of cartoon characters, including Cherry, Bird, Cow, Jasper, Jarvis, Kiki, Paxton, Milo, Queen Zina, and BoxerBlu, and Bram. News for 0-3 year olds can be found on YouTube: Little News Ears - Cuddly News.
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.
