Awesome Kid Vid: Homeless Bird by Gloria Whelan

November 14th, 2009 by

If you’re a loyal Kidsmomo follower (as you should be; har har), then you know that a few days ago I included a kid-created book trailer in my post. (It’s the first video in the post, in case you missed it.)

The music, the visuals, the writing — I thought the video was totally amazing. And since then, I’ve been obsessed with watching other book trailers by students at the same school. Not in a creepy way! They’re just really, really good, okay?

Anyway… in honor of this week’s Kidsmomo theme — foreign lands — I wanted to share another awesome kid vid from this talented group. This one is for Homeless Bird by Gloria Whelan, which is set in India and was actually already on our list of recommended reads for the week!

Props to A.N. from Dowdell Middle Magnet School for the fantastic book trailer! Makes you want to run right out and grab this book immediately, doesn’t it?

Well, if you have a favorite book set in a foreign country, you should definitely send in your review! It doesn’t have to be a video. Just submit a written recommendation, and we may feature it in our next podcast! Then you’ll be just as famous as A.N. — which is to say, not that famous since Kidsmomo is not exactly as big as, like, the Kids’ Choice Awards. But hey, we love A.N. and we’ll love you too. Isn’t that enough?
