Book Trailer: A Single Shard

November 10th, 2009 by

This book trailer for A Single Shard was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Foreign Lands theme. For more on A Single Shard, check out our “Leaving on a Jet Plane” podcast.

Pretend you’re entrusted with precious cargo that you must transport safely across the country. Say you’re alone in the woods with your important package, no contact with anyone from home for days. And then imagine that suddenly, a robber approaches. What would you do?

That’s exactly the situation in Linda Sue Park’s A Single Shard — except, did we forget to mention that it takes place in 12th century Korea?

    Um, I’m not trying to be rude, but this isn’t really a mystery book theater anymore.
    It was posted November 10, and today’s date is December 3.

    Hi there! Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, we took a break from posting Mystery Book Theaters — this is just the most recent one. A new one will be posted soon!

    Instead, we put up some KidmomoMO videos:
    » Fantastic Mr. Fox movie review
    » Hoboken Chicken Emergency puppet adaptation

      The book isn’t a mystery themed book, the mystery is which book this is.

      “Mystery Book Theater” is a feature on Kidsmomo: We post a video about a book — but we never mention the book’s title — and kids can guess what the book is, when we are showcasing the video.
