Le Mars Children Listen To IPTV's Dan Wardell

(Le Mars) -- When you think of children's programming hosts, you may think back a couple generations to Bob Keeshan as Captain Kangeroo, or perhaps locally, Jim Henry as Canyon Kid, Duane Elliot with the Floppy Show, Dave Dedrick as Captain 11, or even Tim Poppens.  But today's children watch Dan Wardell on Iowa Public Television.   The Le Mars Public Library played host today to two children's seminars featuring  Wardell of the Iowa Public Television Kid's Club.  Through out the summer, Wardell will criss-cross the state and visit 67 different communities, and their public libraries.  His message to children may actually surprise people.
