Young Author Goes Viral with Worm Video

A young author named Michael went viral on YouTube today, giving a heartwarming science speech about earthworms and sharing a homemade book.

Follow this link to watch the video–what do you think? The video should remind parents and caregivers everywhere: let children follow their interests, wherever they may lead.

One reader wrote: “I hope my child grows up to be that interested in nature etc. Even just a little bit. What a cool kid.” Another reader added: “He gave a 3 minute presentation with exactly one filler word. He’s going to dominate speech class in high school/college. Most adult presenters I’ve seen can’t even pull off 3 minutes without more than one filler word.”
