What would a video look like starring Rip Van Winkle, Three Blind Mice, Humpty Dumpty, Curious George, Big Bad Wolf, Little Red Riding Hood, and other similar well-known characters? Wonder no more, book lovers, because a new video called Book People Unite combines all these literary heroes in a 1-minute promo ad.
The folks behind the group say the video wants to "help get books in the hands of kids who need them the most." Definitely a cause us readers can get behind.
Even cooler is the music, written and performed by hiphop group The Roots (known for their work on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon). The tune gives the video a different edge than other pro-literacy ads.
Spread the word to anyone who loves books...
