Books on Film

There are lots of great videos on YouTube that involve books and the literary world.  Here are a few recent favourites that make me smile :)
Many beloved literary characters (Pinocchio, Captain Ahab, Little Miss Chatterbox, Black Beauty, and Raggedy Ann and Andy, just to name a few!) get together to "rally people behind the Book People Unite movement and help get books in the hands of kids who need them the most" (YouTube blur).  Features a lovely song produced by The Roots and features the vocal talents of Jack Black, Chris Martin, John Legend, Regina Spektor, and more!
For more info on the movement, visit the website: Book People Unite

If you have 15 minutes to spare then I really recommend that you watch this!  The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore won the Oscar for Best Animated Short in 2011 and it was a well deserved win! Such a charming story, I laughed and cried while watching this visually delightful film.
