Twitterville Talk #28

So much over the wire this week it was hard to keep it short and sweet; year-end roundups, holiday treats and what 2012 will bring.

Here is an amazing TED video about educator, John Hunter, and The World Peace Game.  The video length is 20:28; so little time for a huge amount of inspiration.  Edutopia provided this link. 

 It seems that young adult authors are in the holiday spirit once again.  Thanks to Children's Bookshelf of Publishers Weekly for the link.

I am in complete and total agreement with Elizabeth Bird, blogger at School Library Journal, A Fuse #8 Production on this video Happy Holidays from Chronicle Books being right up there with the best.

E. Bird has also given us another excellent resource:  Librarian Preview:  Little, Brown and Company (Spring/Summer 2012)  Thanks for all your hard work and invaluable insights.

From print to the silver screen, read The Art of Making Movies:  Behind-the-Scenes Looks at War Horse, Tintin, and Arthur Christmas.

Marissa Meyer writes for NPR; The Teens Are All Right:  2011's Top 5 YA Novels.  I've read two; the other three look very appealing.

Authors Richard Peck, Lisa McMann, Jack Gantos and Loreen Long share Holiday Memories 2011.

For food lovers SLJ posted this link to Punchfork, one of the best recipe sites that I have ever seen. 

Great Websites For Kids sponsored by the Association For Library Service To Children has a new look but with the same great resources.

If you like quotes like I like quotes, then QuoteStumbler is the place for you.  You will lose hours of your time, guaranteed.  Thanks to YALSA for the link.

PBS Learning Media has many educational opportunities available in a unit titled Exploring Ice and Cold.  Thanks to Thirteen Education for this tweet.

Thanks to Richard Byrne of Free Technology For Teachers for the link to Great Collection of Educational Apps on Pinterest.

Happy Christmas Eve to each and every one of you.
