Banda Pear
Inspired by Shel Silverstein’s Runny Babbit and his topsy-turvy adventures, ECP presents Banda Pear, our own panda bear character of mixed-up sounds. In this creative writing and publishing workshop, students will write poems about what Banda Pear does, and then have fun playing with sounds and flip-flopping the sounds around!
