It’s wonderful to belong to SAG-AFTRA, a union that does so many wonderful things for so many people, not just for its members.
From the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Storytime Online, “Turkey is in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it’s almost Thanksgiving… and you’re the main course. But Turkey has an idea—what if he doesn’t look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever!”
I love Marc Maron’s delivery as he reads Turkey Trouble. Sort of deadpan, sort of ironic, sort of super-expressive, and wildly engaging. He makes me smile—and creates a healthy amount of tension— from the first sentence he speaks. And, I love how, at the end of this 5-minute reading, he explains how he chose this book to read. I hope you and your family enjoy it—feel free to share.
The SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s award-winning and Daytime Emmy-nominated children’s literacy website, Storyline Online, streams imaginatively produced videos featuring celebrated actors including Viola Davis, Allison Janney, Chris Pine, Wanda Sykes, Justin Theroux, and Betty White reading children’s books alongside creatively produced illustrations, helping to inspire a love of reading in children. Storyline Online is available 24 hours a day for children, parents, and educators worldwide. For each book, a supplemental curriculum developed by a literacy specialist is provided, aiming to strengthen comprehension and verbal and written skills for English-language learners worldwide.
