New RUBY FLEW TOO!, SHE'LL BE COMING ROUND THE MOUNTAIN and HOW THE BORKS BECAME read-along and sing-along videos

Following on from last month's post about authors recording and broadcasting from their computers, I've recorded some new videos of my own.

Here's my reading of Ruby Flew Too! illustrated by Rebecca Harry. You can find out more about this book and download activity sheets on this page of my web site: scribblestreet.co.uk/pictures/ruby1/ruby1.html

My picture book adaptation of She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain illustrated by Deborah Allwright is currently out of print, but it seemed like an entertaining sing-along for stay-at-home families, so I decided to record a version of the song using the new lyrics I wrote for the book. If you listen to it, you will understand why I write rather than sing for a living.

I've created two versions of the video; this one with just the song …



… and this longer version which teaches you the actions that accompany the words.

And I wrote about this book in this post about adapting picture books from songs: scribblestreetnews.blogspot.com/2018/10/picture-books-adapted-from-songs.html


And finally, here's my reading of How the Borks Became: An Adventure in Evolution illustrated by Elys Dolan. You can find out more about this book and download activity sheets on this page of my web site: scribblestreet.co.uk/pictures/borks/borks.html

I hope you enjoy watching the above videos and perhaps joining in with the last two! If any of you fancy videoing your rendition, send me a link and I may even add it to this page.
