Emma Gets Her Videoblog

If you are considering writing an MG novel, or if you just like them, I suggest you check out the kids on StoryTubes . These are kid-selected, kid-created videoblogs for grades 1 - 6. They talk about why they like books, and the some of the books they selected (it includes non-fiction) surprised me. Of course my daughter had to enter and explained to me, "Your book is a little weird, Mom, with the fires and the fish and all, and besides you have to be 12 to read it." She chose C.S. Lewis' The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Guess dining with speaking beavers isn't weird...

What a great idea! Kids learn best from each other. I will have my class watch these -- thanks for sharing Anne.
