Last Gasp Summer Reading Suggestions for Kids

Because I clearly have too much time on my hands (cue raucous slightly unhinged laughter) I recently helped create a little summer reading suggestion video with the help of my bud, fellow blogger Monica Edinger (of the Educating Alice blog)  TOGETHER we have created the ultimate in video recommendations.  Doubt me?  Check out the post Last Gasp Summer Reading Suggestions for Kids where you can hear my dulcet tones talking up a whole range of books.

Not convinced?  Then behold the reasons to watch the video there:

– I discuss a gigantic parrot that smells like honey (and it’s a real bird)

– You get to hear my baby fart (we are nothing if not classy)

– Where else are you going to see me wearing a lion suit?

  1. Strikes me that claiming that any farts heard are the baby is exactly the sort of solution Origami Yoda would suggest.

    Hooray — a great summer run-down of reading treats. And Baby’s First Film Credit! 😉
    By the way, did you now that Mo Willems was the subject of a “JEOPARDY!” question on Friday night?
