The blog of a teacher educator discussing poetry, children's literature and issues related to teaching children and their future teachers.
This is flat-out brilliant - and Tomie should get an Oscar. Ditto Jeanne Birdsall. I'm sharing it with everyone I know.
Pretty much laughing 'til weeping. --- one of us should do one of these about writing ideas....
And it was just so much fun doing it.Signed: Three-take Janie
That made my morning. And now I've got the Ambassador's new number! Mwhaahaha!
What a riot! Adam all insecure on the phone, Mo with the Emmys. Master Tomie. OMG.I knew most of them, but I did not realize that the agent was Jeanne Birdsall. She was brilliant.
Oh, I'm totally grabbing your post for K Central Blog. With credit, of course.
I kept seeing this around, but I'm SO GLAD I finally watched it. Oh thank you, JJK. How fun.
Hilarious!! I am grabbing this for my blog. And sharing it with teachers for kids talking about writing process and publishing. Too much fun!
I SO needed that! Thanks, Jarrett, Tomie, Jeanne, John, Tony, Jane and all for the reminder that writing and drawing are PHYSICAL acts. Neither one is accomplished by eating fistfuls of CocoaPuffs and fretting!
Found this on the new Kidlitosphere Central. I liked the video so much it's causing me to become inarticulate... Ooh--neato! Can't decide which cameo I like the best: Mo Willems? Jon Scieska (1234567...)? Tomi DiPaola? Mostly I like Jarrett balancing on that rock and having to put his foot down every few seconds--I'm pretty sure there's some symbolism there. Thanks!!!
Special thanks to Scieszka and JKK for pronouncing their names for us!
