Reading Ready Time with MGOL


About a month ago,  Shael Weidenbach, Area Resource Manager of Youth Services at the Indianapolis Public Library told me about a wonderful series of videos that she is creating and curating called “Reading Ready Time.” She sent me links to a few of them; my favorite was one where she interviewed the driver of a garbage truck and then she actually was able to go into the truck and drive it! The videos were varied, but they always started with her welcoming her audience into the library and ended with her linking the topic covered by her guest with books available in the public library.

Shael asked if I would make a video for her on Mother Goose on the Loose, so here it is!
