Wormhead - DVD Synopsis
Narrated by Zoelle Montgomery
Jesse is excited about entering the second grade – she
Wormhead is a wonderful, gentle story about accepting people as they are. Fear, suspicion and dislike are transformed by the simple act of talking, a reminder that is as important for adults as it is for children. Stella Mckeown's tender images work flawlessly & Rich McKeown’s music blends perfectly to enrich this DVD. The soothing cadence of Zoelle Montgomery's voice truly brings Wormhead to life. This project was beyond doubt a family affair! Carolyn McKeown, the author was Rich McKeown’s wife, Stella McKeown the artist his mother & Zoelle Montgomery, the narrator, his aunt.
I dedicate this particular blog post to the late Carolyn McKeown who wrote the short story, and to my daughter, Christina, who learned about courage just from watching this delightful dvd. Christina writes, "Wormhead is about a girl who has locks like a worm. Kids should read this because it will teach them not to make fun of anyone. I liked it because it teaches a lot. And at the end they donâ€™t make fun of Nia anymore because her other friend sticks up for her."
The late author Carolyn McKeown, has a delightful style, and demonstrates a respect for the rhythm of children in this story. Rich McKeown has dedicated this piece to her memory. Carolyn succumbed to breast cancer in January, 2003.
