Description
‘Tis the season of good cheer and you, dear listeners, are our reason to be merry! Once Upon a Times’ traditional hedgehog holiday has almost begun—but before the festivities commence, Mr. Redge has invited the Folktale Forest’s Society of Bards and Balladeers to give you a glimpse into the magic of Jolly Holly Day. So, with narrative expressions of joy and great glee they present the poem, ’Twas a Night Most Jolly Holly.  PARENTS, TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS: This episode was inspired by “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” to describe a holiday tradition from our imaginative land of Once Upon a Time. It demonstrates another important form of storytelling: the narrative poem. Poetry is a form of self-expression and it helps us understand and appreciate the world around us.  Episode webpage: https://jonincharacter.com/twas-a-night-most-jolly-holly/  Listen to our Jolly Holly Hedgehog Holiday BONUS episode: https://jonincharacter.com/jolly-holly-hedgehog/ Our special guest voice actors originally performed their characters in these episodes: Eric O’Keeffe as Sherlock Nettlesbee: https://jonincharacter.com/mary-had-a-little-yes-and/Erika Ludwig as Isabella, the book-loving bear: https://jonincharacter.com/pura-belpre/Sabrina Glow as Alice in Slumberland: https://jonincharacter.com/alice-in-slumberland/Chanel Tsang as Serena the caring capybara: https://jonincharacter.com/big-bads-big-feelings/Melissa Victor as Rapunzel the STEM Princess: https://jonincharacter.com/rapunzel/Dorktales Storytime Podcast website:  https://jonincharacter.com/dorktales-storytime-podcast/ CREDITS: This episode has been a Jonincharacter production.
