Celebrating Language through Story and Song
Hi. I'm Eric Ode, an author, songwriter, and poet for kids and families. I'm glad you stopped by! Here you can learn about my author visit assemblies and workshops for schools and my music and poetry programs for libraries. You can check out my schedule for upcoming concerts and events, read a few poems, and take a peek at my books and CDs. Those links above take you to other pages in my children's music and poetry web site. Enjoy! Oh, and while you're here, drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'd look forward to hearing from you.
We have officially launched a new poetry podcast for kids! Here are 2 ways you can help fund the series...

New releases, upcoming events, literacy and poetry resources, whatever else seems noteworthy,... And maybe a really bad joke now and again.
Workshops & Programs
As a former elementary teacher, I'd like to help you get your kids excited about the writing process. We'll use story, poetry, and music in high-participation assemblies and workshops to discuss pre-writing, drafting, and revising. Here's more information.
My music-filled library programs use hand motions, body movement, fingerplays, children's books, poems, puppets, and props to create programs sure to teach, engage, and entertain. Check out some program possibilities.
