Our Daily Inspirations is a podcast from NPR! The following is a description from the Podcast Directory:
"Created and produced by parents of young children, WBUR's Circle Round
adapts carefully-selected folktales from around the world into sound- and music-rich radio plays for kids ages 4 to 10. Each 10- to 20-minute episode explores important issues like kindness, persistence and generosity. And each episode ends with an activity that inspires a deeper conversation between children and grown-ups."
