strong girl video – Blueberry Girl by Neil Gaiman

This is a beautiful video written and spoken by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Charles Vess. It’s like a wish for girls–that they find their own truth and strength. it’s such a positive, strong message for girls written and spoken in a lilting, fantasy-like way. Gaiman’s voice is musical, there’s soft, beautiful music beneath it, and the illustrations are enchanting and magical.

This is a video to share.

And what’s wonderful, at least to me, is that this is also a book promotion video–a fantastic one. The text and illustrations are from Neil Gaiman’s book (illustrated by Charles Vess): Blueberry Girl

Who wouldn’t want the book, after watching the uplifting video?

What do you think? Did you like the video? Do you think it will help sell the book?

Thanks to Notes From the Slush Pile for the link.

    Oh, good, Ms S! I love that. Of course it’s good for boys, too. 🙂 I think it’s a fantastic message. Help boys know that girls are equal and strong.
