Book Trailer Friday!

10 Sep

We here at Book Talk decided that we want to do something fun on Fridays, so we are starting Book Trailer Fridays! “What are book trailers?” you may be asking. Book trailers are just like movie trailers…but for books! There are some really great ones out there, and we want to share them with you! Book trailers can be a great resource for teachers in the classroom; because they are another way kids can interact with the text, and teachers can use trailers when doing a book talk as well!

One of my favorite book trailers out right now is for Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan! Splat the Cat by Rob Scotton has a really great trailer as well. But to kick off the first Book Trailer Friday, we are going to highlight the trailer for Tad Hills’ How Rocket Learned to Read. You can find How Rocket Learned to Read in October’s Firefly! And don’t forget that we have an exclusive “I Can Read Like Rocket!” reading certificate that you can download to use in your classroom!
