ABOUT CIRCLE ROUND: 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 3-103. Each tale explores important issues like kindness, persistence and generosity. Beloved voices from the stage, screen and podcast/public-radio worlds bring these stories to life with the help of narrator, writer, and veteran public radio host/reporter Rebecca Sheir. Eric Shimelonis, composer for the stage and screen, creates original music for each story.
