Well, it’s time once again to see what awesome new videos the Penguin Random House channels have to offer.
This week we’re looking at ‘Books Written by Women,’ rethinking a speech by President Ronald Reagan, an author talks about the author that influenced her, and Hoot and Peep. I’m including the videos for the first and last clips and you can click on the link at the end of the cutline on the other two videos to be taken to their corresponding clips on YouTube. I’m going to try to make it so if you click on the video photo it will take you to the clip. If that doesn’t work just click on the link at the end of the cutline.
