Episode 40: Muppet Fashion and Gym Class takes us on a journey from the best Christmas Carol adaptation of all time (A Muppet Christmas Carol) all the way to the radicalization of youth online and finally ends up at Animal Crossing, with some detours into therapeutic bitching about high school gym classes and the challenge of finding joyful movement. It’s our last episode before our winter hiatus, and we hope you enjoy.
We’re on hiatus until the new year! Look for new episodes in February.
Resources about the truth of Thanksgiving for kids
As I looked for the books to put in these show notes, I found a post by Dr. Debbie Reese of Nambé Pueblo, who keeps the American Indians in Children’s Literature blog (linked below). Dr. Reese encourages us that rather than try to read our kids books about Thanksgiving from the perspective of the Indigenous people, we read books about other topics by those authors instead.
