Video Sunday: Now with less commentary!
Yup. I’m still on vacation. Soaking in the Shakespeare while I can, since the next few years are going to consist of remarkably few syllables (see: baby). So here are a couple videos I’ve had shaking around for a while but never was able to fit into a post before. Enjoy, enjoy!
First, some kids on The Today Show and with Roald Dahl’s daughter Lucy.
Thanks to 100 Scope Notes for the link!
More kids! A group of 7-12 year old adapt the picture book Corduroy by Don Freedman:
Thanks to Watch. Connect. Read. for the link.
Author time! This is a rather sophisticated video from Owlkids Books on Roslyn Schwartz’s Vole Brothers picture book. Publishers, you would do well to emulate this. PLEASE make sure to stick around for “the editorial process”. It is fantastic!
Vicky Smith of Kirkus speaks to Deborah Wiles about her book Countdown:
Another author, Margi Preus, speaks about her own book Heart of a Samurai:
Thanks to Mishaps and Adventures for the link.
Heh heh. Love the Nagini part. As Leila Roy said, it may not STRICTLY be work appropriate but… eh.
Thanks to bookshelves of doom for the link.
No off-topic this week, I fear. I figure that last one makes for a pretty good stand-in anyway. Thanks for reading/watching!
