Top Picture Books on YouTube

Last week we discovered the classic animated version of Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar on YouTube. It was so much fun to watch and brought back childhood memories!While visiting one of my favourite places today, Mariah's Playful Learning blog, I noticed she was sharing her best animated children's picture book DVDs. So I went back to YouTube and .....WOW! There are so many fantastic storytelling resources!!

How wonderful! I am another one who didn't know things like this were even on You Tube! I have always thought of You Tube as just for music, movie clips and silly stuff!
I will look at them different now and with a new set of eyes! ;)
