Children's book treasures.
Very cute, especially that active background! I didn't know the poem so looked it up. Reminds me of all the cautionary tales of old to keep children 'minding their elders'.
Thank you...I think Hillaire Belloc intended his as slightly tongue in cheek versions of exactly those. 'Matilda who told such dreadful lies' (and perishes in a house fire)also worth looking up.
Love the British accent. And Eddie is a great reader!
Thank you. It is his Super Skill. I think he has a photographic memory which is always useful. We like to get him to do Shakespearean soliloquies for fun. I want to dress him as a mini Henry 5th (call Social Services..;))
Oh my goodness - I was entranced, both by Eddie's earnest, accurate and exressive recitation, as well as by Bill's antics in the background, seeking no doubt to enliven things. Lovely!!!
They're a good double act. Thanks for indulging their Proud Mama!
Look at those two boys!! Love love love the video. I particularly enjoyed the part when the supporting cast deliberately slipped to further highlight his brother's impassioned recitation. Such a joy having kids who obviously love the written (and spoken) word.
Big brothers always have to upstage little ones...
