PODCAST. Poppleton is the main character in a series of children’s books written by American author Cynthia Rylant. Illustrated by Mark Teague. Published originally by Blue Sky press in 1997. Also published by Viking and Scholastic.
Poppleton was read on December 14th, 1997 by Ms. Felicia Howell’s 5th grade after-school technology group at Lead Elementary School in San Mateo. This was their first podcast ever! We recorded Poppleton by passing the book and the mic around a table in the library. It was a lot of fun. Read by: Ms. Howell, Leilani, Rylee, Tru, Michelle, Osvaldo, Iztasu and Bobby
The stories follow a pig named Poppleton who moves from the city to a small town and enjoys humorous adventures with his friends and neighbors. This series is marketed to children ages 5 to 9. Poppleton was the mascot for American Library Association‘s 1997 reading campaign. ~Wikipedia
