I'm a medical librarian at the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM). Views expressed here are my own and in no way reflect those of NN/LM, the National Library of Medicine or other entities. I am not an acronym, I am a free woman. What’s an Eagle Dawg?
I’m glad that health education videos for children (and rural health outreach programs in general) have come quite far since 1971, when Ro-Revus Talks About Worms was produced by The Malnutrition and Parasite Project of the University of South Carolina and funded by the Office of Economy Opportunity.
Key points to remember:
Never use the out of doors for a bafroom. The bushes in your yard, or the dirt on your doorstep, is not a bafroom.
Oh look! You can see the little baby worms inside the eggs!
… If you don’t use your toilet or privy, if you use the out of doors for a bafroom, all of those eggs will get into the dirt.
I can’t even talk about the length of the dead tapeworms next to rulers in here and how racial bias is definitely present.
Now for your instructor and model student, frog and squirrel puppets:
My voice is pitched a full octave lower than my usual soprano on the chorus line because I woke up sounding like a strangled frog that day and lost my voice outright 2 days later. It was a miracle I could do the last line without croaking. The cuckoo clock was brought home from the Black Forest region during WWII by my grandfather.
Today is also our son’s 8th birthday & I’m assuming this video will embarrass him by the time he adds on another 8 years. He already saw the video and was far more impressed that big-noggined David Rothman kicks it off (and that I’m friends with him on Facebook) than by anything I contributed to it.
