It's time for the 90 Second Newbery Video contest. In this contest, children are asked to make a 90 second (or thereabouts) video of their favorite Newbery Award winner or Honor book. Hmmmmm, this year's winner, Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos might require a safety warning - as in DON'T TRY THESE STUNTS AT HOME!!!!
Scroll down on James Kennedy's 90 Second Newbery page to see some very clever short adaptations of wonderful books. I especially liked the shadow puppet version of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin.
The deadline for the 90 Second Newbery Contest is November 10, 2012. So please read the rules carefully. You will find them here. Then grab your camcorder and get filming.
