Introducing The Story Seeds Podcast!

Update: 2020-02-182


Kids are creative rockstars! Introducing The Story Seeds™ Podcast, where we match kids and their story ideas with beloved authors who grow their story seeds into original, short stories! Follow along on each episode as children ages 6-12 and authors go on inspiring field trips in NYC to grow their story ideas (ahem, seeds!) through conversation and collaboration. 

Hosted by kidlit maven and librarian Betsy Bird, this season, you’ll hear 10 never-before heard stories written by your favorite authors, including Jason Reynolds, Dan Gutman, Carlos Hernandez, Aram Kim, Chris Grabenstein, and more. Music by Andrew VanWyngarden, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter/musician and co-founder of MGMT. 

Books mentioned in this trailer: 

Cat on the Bus  & No Kimchi for Me by Aram Kim, My Weird School series by Dan Gutman, and Mr. Lemoncello’s Library series by Chris Grabenstein
