Video Sunday – Warm Films for a Cold Day
Well, not as much for you this week. In fact, I’ve spent most of my time ripping off poor Jarrett Krosoczka. He’s good for a YouTube video here and there. The first one here is undoubtedly my favorite. I believe that school plays are now being replaced by schoolYouTube videos. How else to explain this magnificent rendition of Jarrett’s picture book "Annie Was Warned"? Watch and enjoy.
Not that his "Punk Farm" fans aren’t just as enthusiastic when it comes to referencing his work:
I was speaking to a library manager the other day and the topic turned to ebooks, as every conversation between librarians eventually does. He commented that in his experience the young hip new librarians are the ones most convinced that paper books won’t go away. I agree, but that doesn’t mean thate-readers like Amazon’s Kindle don’t have their place too. From Technology Evangelist here is the best possible review of the new Kindle I’ve seen.
And this comes from my boy Alan.
Happy holidays, everyone!
