*Every Friday we serve you an “a la carte” style list of 5 unique videos, articles, ideas, etc. from all kinds of locations. (If you are viewing this blog through your email subscription, please follow the link to our website to view all videos.)  See you next week…

1.  One Amazing Set of Encyclopedias! – “What happens when an artist comes to face-to-face with an old, 24-volume Encyclopedia Britannica set? In the case of Montreal-based Guy Laramée, the answer would be to turn the vintage books into a medium for sculpture.”

2.  Good Night, Gorilla – the interesting story behind this children’s classic.


3.  21 Reason to Quit Your Job and Become a Teacher – my favorite is #11.



5.  A “Read Every Day” poster that reminds me of our family’s favorite summer beach on Jekyll Island in Georgia.  The poster was created by ‘Lucky Ducklings’ illustrator Nancy Carpenter:3a789b006fec133d3f07cbf79f729f4f
