Fun Links for Saturday

I've seen some fun things around this week and had to share:

The Baby-sitters Club: Where Are They Now? This post has a pretty funny description of what our favorite babysitters are doing these days. Thanks to my friend Brooke (via Facebook)

Author James Kennedy has a great contest going:
Newbery Winners in 90 seconds. I love this video for A Wrinkle In Time (I think I saw this first on A Fuse #8)

And this I found today (thanks to Yahoo) where a girl reads Fox in Socks super fast-pretty impressive! (Although I wish it were a bit more enunciated-thank goodness there are subtitles on the screen!)


  1. Love that Newbery in 90 seconds video. So funny.

  2. I just saw the 90 second Newbery contest on Grace Lin's blog as well. I love the idea and am going to see if some of my students want to take part. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Now I don't need to read A Wrinkle in Time! Just kidding, I'll probably get to it eventually. One question, though: What was in the jar...?

  4. Holy snap! That gal is seriously awesome for the Dr. Seuss thing!

  5. Hey, thanks for featuring the kickoff video for our "90-Second Newbery" film festival on your blog! You know, we met at ALA last summer. Remember? Remember? Good times. I hope you enjoyed the CD... and "The Order of Odd-Fish" too!

    @Literature for Lunch: I hope your students do take part! I think this is going to be a lot of fun.

    @Zombie Girrrl: It was coiled-up plastic foam, lightly tied together with string, so when the jar broke, it would uncoil creepily. (I was glad it only took one take. We only had one glass jar.)

  6. @James-Yes! I do remember meeting you at ALA-how nice you remember! My husband and I both loved the CD and the teens at my library are reading The Order of Odd Fish. I hope I can convince some of them to do a video-I think it's a great idea!!


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
