Video: The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore

Posted by Connie Harrison on March 18, 2020 in Blogs |

Winner of the 2012 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,” was first a picture book by William Joyce. The book was written by Mr. Joyce to show his appreciation for his mentor, William Morris, a children’s book publisher.

When creating the film, Mr. Joyce designed the look and behavior of the main character, Morris Lessmore, after silent film legend, Buster Keaton.

Younger children will enjoy the sweet story of a man and his magical books, older children will be mesmerized by the physical comedy of Buster Keaton when they do a Google search of his films. Adults will need a box of Kleenex.

Enjoy! Here’s the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ad3CMri3hOs

Journaling And Reading While School Is Closed

Posted by Connie Harrison on March 14, 2020 in Blogs |

On Twitter, I read an interesting post from an historian who suggested that we keep a journal of our experiences while we are under quarantine. I think this is an excellent idea for children as well as adults. Keep a note of things you notice in the media, the behavior that you see and your own feelings.
