Ted-Ed is part of the famous Ted Talks we all know and love, but with a specific educational direction in mind. Ted-Ed is youth and education orientated, with a mission to spark the imaginations of teachers and students all over the world, and ignite a passion for learning.
I have been enjoying Ted Talks for years now, but these handy little videos are so special I just had to share them with our Reading Addicts.

After teaser trailers, official trailers telling us the release date, and now this final look at what is to come- the newest season is out today, 25th of April 2018.
Check out the video from George Takei below for an insight into what the author behind the original book has to say about the series.
Since that first appearance he’s been back several times, proving a favourite with children and mothers alike. The British heartthrob who’s played characters such as hardman Alfie in Peaky Blinders and the Krays may not seem like the first choice for reading bedtime stories but both him and his dog have been popular additions to the show.

Gnomeo and Juliet was based loosely on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet – the animation was far less tragic and a lot more musical, with songs by Elton John. The British-American collaboration was greeted with mixed reviews but did well in the box office and became the highest-grossing animated feature among those released at the time until it was beaten by The Lego Movie in 2014. Its sequel introduces new characters and a new literary inspiration: Sherlock Holmes… Sherlock Gnomes.
There is a host of famous voices returning for the sequel as well as some new characters. James McAvoy is back as Gnomeo alongside Emily Blunt as Juliet, with Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, Julie Walters, and Richard Wilson as their parents. Sherlock Gnomes and his friend Gnome Watson are played by Johnny Depp and Chiwetel Ejiofor, with Mary J. Blige appearing as Sherlock’s ex-girlfriend and general bad girl doll Irene.
