Video Sunday – Amateur Night Edition
Author Esme Codell is our guiding angel this particular Video Sunday. If you take a gander at her blog Planet Esme you can find two videos of great interest. Ms. Codell is, as we say in the business, chock full of good old-fashioned talent. She has an appreciation for Folkmanis puppets (they’ve a fairly amusing commercial for their products here) that I myself share. Unlike Esme, however, I’ve never been quite as creative with them as she.
Which got me to thinking. What other perfomances can I find on YouTube? Can I find a bunch of librarians doing Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus? Apparently so.
I LOVE the bus driver’s accent. I think I’m going to have to steal that.
And can I find family videos of children performing another Mo Willems book I Am Invited to a Party? I can!
And can I also find a video book review of Cowboy and Octopus?
He’s cute. So cute, in fact, that I will forgive him for messing up Mr. Scieszka’s name (it rhymes with fresca). Maybe Canadians pronounce it differently.
Good stuff. Aside from that, I got nothing. Till next week, poppins!
