Today’s blog is a video post! I recorded a new ReadAloud video, of a great children’s book called Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. This is one of my favorite children’s books; it is visually stunning and has a really good message. And it features an awesome main character: Miss Alice Rumphius, a girl who grows up, becomes a librarian, goes on many adventures in faraway places, comes home to live by the sea, and makes the world more beautiful. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
If you have any suggestions of what you’d like to have in a future ReadAloud, leave me a comment here or on the video itself. I’ve got my new webcam set up so I hope to make lots more awesome videos soon!
The Bookaneer would like to wish you all a happy holiday season, and is making a promise she hopes she can keep! See you in 2013!
It’s Halloween! Not only is this my favorite holiday (after Talk Like A Pirate Day, of course), but it’s made even better with the addition of All Hallow’s Read! I did end up making some video readings, and I hope to do a couple more on Thursday (All Hallow’s Day :D). Here is a link to the introduction post, which has links to the actual readings in the description:
Let me know what you think! I had a lot of fun with these, and I’d like to do more soon. Do you have any ideas for future readings?
Keep bookaneering, mateys! I know I will!
I have finally decided, as my last act of Bold Moves October, to actually start the vlogging I keep talking about. So here it is: my first video!
I hope you enjoy it! Can you guess which part makes me laugh every time?
