For several uninteresting reasons, I've been unable to visit our libraries regularly. Today, I was finally able to get my hands on some newer library books. Yay!
The above book trailer is interesting in that you just see snippets of the book itself, mixed with interviews from New Yorkers remembering a blackout.
My son picked Blackout over a few other choices and I can't wait to share it with him. The harmony between the words and images is amazing. The unwritten story is deep, but even the broader topic of losing power will strike a chord with little ones. We live in quiet suburbia, so a city tale won't resonate like it will with children who know more about that world, but it's still a way to broaden horizons.
