For my Resources for Children class, I have to follow the YALSA-Bk List, as well as Joyce Valenza’s blog, Never Ending Search.
Last week, the YALSA List had a link to a hilarious video called “Accio Deathly Hallows”–Hank Green, brother of John Green, the YA author, sang a song about how anxious he was to read the new Harry Potter book.
I already knew a tiny bit about John Green/Hank Green’s blog–at the Printz Awards, I and the rest of the audience said, “Hi Hank!” to a video camera for the blog. The two brothers decided to communicate only through their video blog for one year.
The song was wonderful! So I sent a link to my now 13-year-old son.
My son has spent hours of the last three days (EVEN after getting a Wii!) beginning at the beginning of the video blog and watching every single entry. He’s up to April.
I watched today’s and think I’m hooked. Anyone who gets excited about cataloging his home library is my kind of person!
As if that weren’t enough, in Joyce Valenza’s blog, there was a link to some utterly hilarious librarian videos, created by “Dr. Loopy.” I’ve done some hard laughing tonight. Is that allowed for a school assignment?
(I’ve added both hilarious links to my Blogroll.)
