The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy my new job?

Why?

Because I get to research, read, and show kids stuff like this. William Joyce is a brilliant illustrator, writer, and filmmaker who created this wonderful short film that received the Academy Award for Best Animated Short in 2011. There is a beautiful picture book to accompany it, which I will be reading to my students this week, along with showing them the film.

So beautiful. Enjoy!

  2. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?

    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
