In Our Feeds: DIY bookshelves, Yankees’ batboys, and a life-size Lego forest
By Megan on July 6th, 2012
Every Friday, we share a handful of links we find interesting, provocative, funny — or just plain cool. We call it In Our Feeds. Enjoy!
This documentary film project by student Hanah Ryu Chung is beautifully well-done and worth a watch if you have a few minutes. She explores the wonderful tangibility of books and the future of print through the eyes of Toronto print-community members.
We’re thrilled about the Columbia Journalism Review article on our very own Kids Press Corps! Titled “Boy on the bus,” it touts Kid Reporter Z ach Dalzell’s work on the campaign trail.
Alex sent over this heartwarming letter written by J.K. Rowling herself to a young girl who was bullied in her childhood. “I know what it is like to be picked on,” she writes. “You’re now standing on the threshold of a very different phase in your life, one where you are much more likely to find kindred spirits, and much less likely to be subject to the pressures of your teenage years.”
Totally random but totally cool: check out this life-sized Lego forest, constructed in Australia as a part of their year long LEGO 50th birthday project.
Lastly, we love this photo of President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush reading Scholastic-donated books to kids of the Kasisi Children’s Home, in Lusaka, Zambia.
