Laura Linney is narrating a poem for Disney Junior's A Poem Is... series and we have an exclusive preview of what viewers will see!
Watch to hear the star of Showtime's The Big C recite a poem called Things by William Jay Smith to the backdrop of scenes from beloved Disney classics. The A Poem Is... series also features children explaining what they think a poem is.
On poetry, three-time Oscar nominee Linney says, "My earliest memories of reading, and being read to, involves children's poetry. I can still recite the poems my family taught me as a small child. Children's poetry is an invitation to a world where words and emotion and expression combine, providing young minds with tools for communication that are just essential for life."
Things will premiere on Friday, March 23 at 8:25 a.m., ET/PT during the Disney Junior programming block on Disney Channel and will air a second time that night at 7:55 p.m., ET/PT on the brand new 24-hour Disney Junior channel.
