At this moment the featured episode on MeetMeAtTheCorner.org is “Robert Sabuda & The Pop-Up Book.” The video is of the famous pop-up book artist Robert Sabuda. He is interviewed by a cute little girl named Euphrozenia who visits him in his New York City studio to learn how to create a pop-up card. He explains all the hard work that goes into creating a moveable book and that sometimes it can even take over a year to complete. Next he shows Euphrozenia how to make a simple pop-up card using card stock or construction paper. I could not believe all the beautiful detailing of his books. They are absolutely amazing!
There is even contests to spark the artistic skills of the children such as “Iron Man Visits Your Library Contest.” The contest is for students kindergarten through eighth grade. They can submit an illustration or writing of their favorite super hero or even create their own. Prizes consist of a visit from Iron Man, Pizza Parties, Adventure Book sets, and more! In the “Kids Corner” there are several other contests that are available to enter.
I really like MeetMeAtTheCorner.org and Kylie found it to be extremely interesting. I decided to help her create an account so she can explore the website more and possibly submit her own video.
Oh I almost forgot to add that MeetMeAtTheCorner.org is FREE!
