Mrs Pennell talks about story time (5/20/20)

FM #294 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 294 in the series.

This session shares my conversation with Kathleen Pennell, Mrs Pennell. We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about Kathy’s background in education, over 30 years teaching at the early elementary levels, and her love of reading to children is still alive.

During these difficult times, she wanted to do something to help the children knowing that some parents are challenged with both working at home as well as supporting the kids with remote learning.

You believe Kathy when she says: “It is something that I truly love”

The recording runs about 18 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Mrs Pennell. Audio file = https://www.hipcast.com/podcast/HXK9jjZ7

Audible: While school is on pause, kids listen free.

"As all of us around the world confront this difficult new period, we recognize the importance—and the challenge—of staying relaxed and entertained, especially for kids at home who are missing the stimulation of the classroom. From the beginning, Audible has served as an antidote to loneliness and even isolation, as a way to hear words that inspire and transport and for many – words that teach and entertain in deeply intimate ways. 
With all of us experiencing varying degrees of social distancing and school closures, we have created something that we hope makes our customers' lives a little easier. At stories.audible.com, you will find hundreds of our titles available completely free. The collection has been handpicked by our editors and is a mix of stories to entertain, engage, and inform young people, ages 0–18. 
These stories offer a screen-free option that we hope may help break up the day for families with students home from school. 
There are selections for our listeners in English, Spanish, German, French, Japanese and Italian. 
To access the free titles, just visit stories.audible.com from any web browser. 
The experience is completely free – no log-ins, credit cards, or passwords required. Just click, stream and listen. 
We wish you and your loved ones good health, and we hope that listening to a good story will offer some respite during these unsettling times.

All of us at Audible
