Some Book Trailers Make Nancy Jealous

August 19th, 2010 by

Have you heard of a not-so-little feature on our site called the Mystery Book Theater? Hopefully, yes. Because we make a couple of them a month.

Well, Karen recently showed me to some book trailers made by kids — and whoa, they’re really good! I’m totes jealous*… especially since I’ve been slaving away, drawing all of these Mystery Book Theaters for every Kidsmomo theme!

Check out these book trailers:

Crash by Jerry Spinelli book trailer by Sean L.
 
All the Broken Pieces by Ann Burg book trailer by MP.
 
Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo book trailer by MS.

Amazing, huh? Inspired by these book trailers, I think Kidsmomo will be taking a stab at this video style! First up: our upcoming Mystery Book Theater for mythology-inspired books. So make sure to check back next Tuesday for our super-duper-fancy-schmancy awesome book trailer.

Nancy seems to be complaining about illustrating MBTs in this post, but where else does she get the glorious opportunity to draw someone drowning in puke?

*I don’t usually say the phrase “totes jealous.” Forgive me. It just exited my brain, spilled out onto the keyboard, entered this blog post, and now there’s no turning back.

    Today I managed to get Flipped so I’m going to try to speed-read it before I go off to camp!

      Ann Burg! Thank you SO much for your comment! But we can’t take any of the credit. It all goes to teacher Tess Alfonsin and her awesome students. You can check out her website for other reading educators here: http://www.recycleyourreads.com/
