Look Again Series
Topsy-Turvy

Explores magic in fantasy and the everyday world.


A printer-friendly version of this page 9 minutes
Directed by Bill Maylone
Produced by The National Film Board of Canada



In a young boy's dream-world anything can happen--even magic. What magic is there in the child's world of fantasy? What magic is there in everyday things such as electricity and magnetism? Intermediate students will want to discuss their own "magic tricks," while younger children can make hypotheses about why some events cannot really happen.

Other titles in the series are:

Between the Walls - One girl finds a clever way to remove a mouse.

Connections - Making connections between living creatures & machines.

Snowballs and Sandcastles - Children have fun in snow and sand.

Journey of the Blob - An illustration of the water cycle.

Night - Night and the imagination.

Reviews
"During a time when libraries and schools are rethinking ways to achieve excellence, the development of children's reasoning skills should not be overlooked....Complete with authentic sound effects, evocative instrumental music, and talented performers, these shorts sharpen visual literacy as they...make children, stop, look, and listen...these creative 'core' videos also speak clearly to such diverse populations as immigrant, language-disabled, inner city, and rural children."
Booklist

"Beautifully photographed, this series will be stimulating for young boys and girls. Recommended."
