KPE Episode 275: "Getting Board"


David Hill is a favourite author of Pt England readers and "Getting Board" - one of his Kiwi Bites books - is very popular. Even if you are not a fan of skateboarding we are sure you will like this book. Read this 'teaser' from the story... "Cody hit the ground sprawling. His skateboard lay upside down. 'You OK?' a voice asked. The voice was coming from his dog. Cody's eyes bulged."

Listen as Crusader and Gabriel talk about "Getting Board" for their very first podcast.

  7. Hey guys, I just watched the podcast and I think you did very good. I remember the first time I saw someone ride a skateboard and it looked so cool. I tried to ride one, but It didn't go so well! I like the review of this book. It makes me want to go read a book too.

  8. You two did a great job. I remember when I was in 4th grade skateboarding was really in style. I know styles come and go. That is a neat moral.....Help can come from strange places!

  11. Great job! I never really liked skateboarding but, this sounds like a cute story. I also love the moral of the story, "Help can come from strange places." You never know who will help you in life, that is why it is important to treat everyone with kindness.

  13. This was a great first podcast, guys. I tried to skateboard when I was younger but I'm a very clumsy person and my grandma got tired of patching up my jeans. I think I'll stick to skateboarding in video games.

    Keep up the good work and remember that "help can come from strange places".

  19. This sound like a very exciting book. Skateboarding is very popular in the U.S.A. The only way I can stay on is to sit down on the board and go down a hill. That is really fun but if I stand up I fall off. I think you have to have good balance and practice a lot. Do many people skateboard where you live? Keep up the great work.
