The Back Story
I recently decided to make a new type of YouTube video. After thinking about the current situation of the world with Coronavirus, I decided to try a book reading style of video for children. I hadn’t seen my granddaughter in person for a couple weeks at the time. I miss reading books to her in English. She is Japanese and not a native English speaker so reading to her in English is very important to me for her future.
I thought that the next best thing was to make some YouTube book reading videos so she could enjoy having Grandpa read to her any time she wants. I was very pleasantly surprised when I learned that she especially loves watching my videos before going to sleep at night.
Here is an example:
I chose the book “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” because it was the first book I read to her when she was very young. She always loved the book and I thought she would really enjoy the video. Though it was a lot of work, especially because it was the first video of this type that I made, it was very rewarding to know how much she enjoys it!
