Women in Literature (3:36) Don’t think Hillary Clinton is history’s first woman to wield considerable power. We could mention Cleopatra or Elizabeth the First, or Catherine the Great, as examples of women who exercised tremendous sway. But, the list is much, much longer than just that. What do you know about Boadicea, Zerobia of Palmyra or the Biblical Esther? Or, great women of more recent history, such as Liliuokalani, Golda Meir or Indira Gandhi. Today, we meet artist Bethanne Anderson, who has illustrated a number of books. She talks to Rachel about one of the main themes in her books – strong, powerful women – and what sparked this passion for her. Bethanne Andersen teaches Illustration at BYU. She studied art at BYU’s Department of Visual Arts and at the Florence Academy of Art. Physical Activity Reducing Stress (14:52) Next, does exercise make for better learners? – Enhancing our children’s learning at school; lowering our own stress level; establishing healthy life habits? The connection between literacy and liveliness may not be readily apparent, but it’s certainly there. Rachel visits now with Dr. David Barney, professor of Physical Education at BYU, about some benefits of physical activity. Barney is a member of the Teacher Education Department at BYU. He has taught at Oklahoma State University, North Dakota State University, and in public schools in Utah and Florida. Poetry of Leslie Norris (25:20) We finish up the show with two poems about dogs read by Leslie Norris. He has a whole book with animal themed poetry called Norris's Ark, and also recorded those poems in his own voice. The first poem is entitled An Old Dog, the second – Choosing a Friend.
