This time on The Children's Hour, we explore imagination, boredom, and the benefits of both. Our special guests, Kids Imagine Nation are a band out of California who specialize in making the imaginary seem real. Their playful music will get you dancing!

Then we explore "down time" in a poem about doing nothing by Jack Prelutsky. Are you bored? Find out the purpose of boredom, and learn how to make repetitive tasks more fun by playing tricks on your brain!

All of this is mixed with music to ignite the imaginations of our listeners everywhere!
Katie Stone, Executive Producer
Christina Stella, Producer

Breaks can be added at exactly 20:00 and 40:00. To obtain segmented versions of our program, please contact

The Children's Hour includes kids in all aspects of the production.

Kids on our crew and in our community contribute content, design programming, and cohost our shows, live in public venues, and in studio.
