Alphabet Movie challenge: day 11
original question: Kiddie movie I still shamelessly enjoy
modified to: CBeebies episode I enjoy most
Answer: I’m Not Going Out There!
Reading books to children should be fun, for both the child you’re reading to, and you as well; Richard illustrates this wonderfully when reading for CBeebies! The first time I showed my daughter Richard reading these stories, she said that’s how I read to her as well; I didn’t know whether to feel flattered or embarrassed, that I read out loud that animatedly…
I’m nowhere near as talented as we know Richard to be, so I don’t come up with distinct voices for each character
(mostly because I can’t keep them all straight!)
I just adjust my timbre to designate different speakers instead.
In this episode, I like how Richard starts out by saying
that he likes dragons
and that monsters make him laugh;
it’s a playful reminder that this isn’t anything to be afraid of.
Aside from the voices and dramatics though, I just genuinely like the story! The way it seems to be building up into something scary but never really gets there because of the silly ghost and other characters
(also, I just love to hear Richard say “dirty underwear” 😛 )
and then the way the story has that twist at the end.
I find it all
really cute 😀
