The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

I can’t remember ever watching an animated short before. But when this year’s Oscar winner for Best Animated Short Film was about books- well, I really had no choice, did I?

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is incredibly amazing, you guys. Amazing.

It packs so much emotion into 15 minutes. I rarely cry watching videos, yet I found myself tearing up at the end.

Take just 15 minutes to watch it:

If you know a librarian, share this. It will make them feel special.

Sidenote: I now completely want a bed that looks like a book.

    This short video is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. I was so touched, My favorite scene is when the woman walks down the path taking her little book’s hand…adorable!

    Thank you for linking about this! I’ve shared it on my blog too. I usually watch the Oscars so I can’t believe I didn’t watch this earlier!
